It's not that Pouliot has been playing bad, actually the opposite. But when you're in the top 6, you're expected to score and Pouliot hasn't been doing that. To boot, it's also effecting Gionta and Gomez's productivity. So maybe a change will wake him up.
As for Moen, I like him on that line. As we saw in the playoffs last year, he can work the corners, get the puck out to Gomez and Gionta and create scoring chances. When given the chance, Moen can work his butt off and really be effective. Plus, he's shown that he possesses soft hands as well.
For a game or two, I don't mind seeing what the Habs can make out of these lines. But in the long run, Pouliot needs to be given more time and if not, then Moen can rotate with Eller up there. Heck, maybe Eller can start potting some goals with that line and be a permanent fix, albeit it would suck to lose a big centre just to fix a problem at wing.
The message should be sent to Gomez.
