what happened to Pominville?
 
Horrible this year. Him and Vanek were the only two from the old core i wanted to keep. His two way game has been brutal. His effort is non existent. That's inexcusable from a captain.

Get him off this team asap.

Amen, i've been saying that for the last year, i wish Pit would have taken him for Staal(that's if we would've come Buffalo instead of Silly Carolina). We should be able to capture quite the bounty for him.

He has been carried by vanek/hodgson this season. Because of that point production, his value is still decent for a team which wants a veteran winger for their playoff run.

His misses his Lindy

I don't know what Pommer's deal is this year.

While his play has been disappointing on the whole, he seemed to shift into mental quit mode a few weeks ago and has gotten worse since.

He is finally leading the team as Captain Tank / Tank Captain.

I believe the proper title is "Tank Commander".

Realistically what could we get for Pominville?

A left winger to make him look better than he really is.

A purse and some cranberry juice?

Realistically, I think a 1st + "A" level prospect. He's a 1st line winger under contract past this season, and prices are high this deadline.

A Rick Nash type return. 2 Top 9 forwards, a young potential top 4 dman, and a 1st round pick. Nash and Poms have almost identical offensive numbers and Pominville has a better two way game. Nash is a little younger and a better goal scorer. But overall both are similar skilled players and I expect Poms to return something nice.

Beerz 03-26-2013 10:51 PM

Eh.... I'm all for trading Pommers... but... a 15-20 game drought of looking like pooh is no reason to pile on the guy...

Huge return? It was nothing special I think we can get that much, columbus was hand cuffed because everyone knew they had to trade him

That's a rental return. Pominville's not a rental.

msm29 03-26-2013 11:18 PM

Pommerz isn't a playmaker. He needs someone to set him up, and replacing Vanek with Ott takes a playmaker away from him. He's a solid scorer, but he can't create offense by himself. He made a career for himself playing with Briere, continued with Vanek, and isn't nearly as effective as the primary offensive option on a line. Hodgson is good, but not good enough to create for Pominville yet.

Slump started way before he split from Vanek. 11 points in last 26 games. Hodgson has 22 points over that same time.

Sabres captains are cursed. They never last more than 3 years in Buffalo with the C.

...the guy who stitched the "C" on his chest got shown the door and he checked out?

Yah, probably something like that. Sounds about right to me.

I am enjoying the image of Lindy with a needle and thread hand sewing the captaincy to Pominville's sweater.

I am not up on the advanced statistics, but Pominville's giveaway/takeaway ratio this year is insanely positive and he is top 30 in blocked shots among NHL forwards.

That being said, there have been too many times I have questioned his effort this year. This is not acceptable; especially for your captain. Over the last couple of seasons I haven't liked is lack of aggressiveness on the PK. He doesn't challenge the point. Could be why his BS are pretty high because instead of challenging the shooter to force him to pass, he just gets pounded with the shot.

He has the capability and the reputation to be a top line player and a pretty reasonable cap number for this year and next. Right handed shot on the point for the PP and a PKer. He has plenty of value and I hope Regier can get the most for him in a trade. I would like a 1st and a very good prospect. (Bernier and Toffoli isn't bad either if we can move Miller).
