A goodwill gesture?

You see it all the time, the bright eyed youth just called up from the minors after some hard work to play against the team they grew up cheering for.  Or the wiley old veteran brought in for experience, after a few games in the box, is injected into the lineup to face off against a former team.

It's stories like this that most media outlets love to play up and it adds a little extra emotion to the games themselves.  Will the rookie make a name for himself against a team that he idolized will growing up or will the vet show his old that he still has something left in the tank?  Pure hockey gold.

Which brings me to this Saturdays game against Columbus.  Do the Senators give Nikita Filatov a chance to stick it to his old team and show them they were a bunch of moron's and that they clearly don't know what they are doing?  He had a good showing last weekend and if he plays well Friday in Norfolk I think it would be a nice gesture by the Sens brass to call Niki up and let him have his little measure of revenge, so to speak.

I'm sure he had this game circled on the calendar and it would definitely add a little something extra to what is likely going to be a bit of s snooze fest. I mean it is Columbus.  With Peter Jensen getting injured...again, it is a good opprotunity to show a little faith in the kid and give him a little reward for the work he's done will down there.
