I'd make this move in an instant as an Oiler fan.

However.

I would be very leery to move Jacques. He's had obvious issues in the NHL... but he has also decimated the AHL when he's been there. Is he an actual AAAA player, or are we just waiting for the lightbulb to go on?

I'm not saying he's going to be Cam Neely, but a guy with his size, speed, willingness to hit and willingness to go to the net, along with leadership, has "MISTAKE" written all over him in moving him.

I've always been a fan of Pouliot as well. Guy can make and take a pass at speed and has some very respectable defensive numbers in his short NHL career.
