Mark Letestu: Human Yo-Yo

Every penny counts under the salary cap for the Pittsburgh Penguins, but you have to wonder if Mark Letestu is breaking the budget for the hired cars they use to make the trips.

Still, Letestu probably gets 'trooper of the year' for his attitude about the current situation he's in, as he said to Jonathan Bombulie of the Wilkes-Barre Citizen's Voice:

"I'll take it. Anyway to get up," he said. "If this is the way it's gotta be for the next 10 years of my life, I don't care. I'll do it. It's great to be up. But it wears. I don't think I've had a real practice in two weeks now. I'm just finding different ways to get ready for games."

If you're not keeping track at home, here's what his wire log of transactions looks like this season.  Of course, a possible demotion might come today, but with Maxime Talbot seemingly shut-down through the Olympic break, Letestu might be right back in Pittsburgh in time for Friday night's game against the Nashville Predators.
