I think one of the things that allows that line to produce the way they do is that they aren't one of the top two lines. Less pressure on them to score so they're looser and more confident on the ice, and it shows particularly with Pouliot. Put Pouls back on a line called the 1st or 2nd and watch him disappear again, for now at least.
