so you need to get a clue, I know Rochester was bad, Bridgeport was even worse......We took 5 defensemen off that team because of our injuries
And how many Dmen have we taken from Rochester? Your replies are the ones that hold no water. You keep talking about Bridgeport being so much worse, yet Rochester only has four more wins. Gee, we really are a powerhouse AHL team Again, you want to use stats as your only comparison, but fail to take into account everything that surrounds the two players, which is wrong Mr Simpson. You cant just compare two players without taking everything into consideration, unless you want to alter the truth, which you are trying to do Mr Simpson. You want to compare them the right way, then you compare Poulin's stats in the A this year versus Markstrom's season last year at Brynas. Poulin played in the Q then the A in his professional career, which are both NA styles and rinks, while Markstrom played in the SEL for his professional career.

Its nice that you have a great goaltending prospect in Poulin, and from seeing him play, I think he will make a fine NHL goaltender, but quit trying to downplay one of the top prospects in the world because of what he did to start his professional career in NA. What you fail to see is how much the kid has improved since his rough start. I know, thats difficult to see from a box score.
