Ok, since we've gotten a pretty good sample of what the jebroneys from the AHL can do, let me ask this: If you had to keep one of them at the NHL level indefinitely (like maybe once everyone except Dupuis is healthy), which one would it be?

That's a tough one.

I like Farnham's intensity and agitation level, but he really doesn't bring anything else and certainly isn't a "tough guy".

Rust is a capable bottom 6 guy that has speed and some playmaking ability.

Megna? No thanks...

I would say Rust at this point, but only in a 3rd or 4th line role.

Pouliot looks great offensively but his angles are bad defensively, that’s something I think he should work on in the AHL.

Harrington looks the most NHL ready but defense is a position of strength for the Pens right now... we don’t really need him up here.
So I’m going to agree with Trask and say Rust, put him on the fourth line and see what happens… if he can PK that’s an added bonus.

I don't really think Pouliot is there yet. Seems like his defensive work could stand to get better.
