I'd like us to go after him in the off-season if the price is right (which it probably won't be), but otherwise this does have the makings of Antropov Pt. 2 written all over it in terms of how things went down. This team could've really used Antropov and they could really use Poni. They both may be looked at as "soft" because they don't throw their body around and don't normally get the speed going to really hit someone, but they definitely know how to use their body in the corners to shield the puck and win battles, as well as in front of the net. They both also have really good hands in close. Our powerplay could really benefit from adding that element to it...you have guys like Gaborik and Del Zotto out there, and then someone with size to play in front? Sign me up.
