Rangers Call Up Parenteau

October 27, 2009, by

In last night’s game thread, I mentioned that P.A. Parenteau should get a call up if some of the current Rangers keep struggling. Some mentioned Evgeny Grachev, but with Parenteau’s point-per-game pace, I argued he should be the one getting the call.

Apparently Glen Sather liked my idea, and called up Parenteau this afternoon. Parenteau, as mentioned, is having a monster start to the season in Hartford. It is still up for debate if he will play, and if he does, who he will replace. Chris Higgins had a better game last night, but if I were a betting man, I would bet on Higgins joining Aaron Voros in the press box should Parenteau play.

    despite Higgins improved play against the Coyotes i’d like Parenteau to be given a chance somehow. Whether that means Higgins sits or not. Hopefully agaisnt the Isles this year we can allow this kind of thing to an extent. We neeed to find out if Parentuea is an AHLer or if he can contribute at this level so test him. Put him in the top 6 for a game.

    On the flip side you’d like to think Higgins has a good chance to impact a game agaisnt a weaker team such as the isles.

    Im hoping (obviously) Gabby is fit and someone has to sit for Parenteau to get a chance.

    Dave, i also agree that Grachev needed to stay down. Let him continue getting 18+ minutes a night for half a year at least. Reward the most deserving players like P.A.
