Yessir...totally agree with that. At the risk of stating the obvious...he continues the same path, and therefore becomes a total bust....or who knows? Some guys do take time to realize their potential in the NHL, same goes for Lats...at least with Pouliot, skating is not an issue and that could be the biggest factor in how this turns out.

I'll be dead honest, I was really thrilled we picked AK over the likes of Getzlaf and Carter (neither tore it up stats-wise in Junior), because the consensus was AK had the makings of being a true offensive superstar, which we desperately needed...but hey, I learned my lesson in that regard.
