Just wondering why so many people are leaving Pouliot off there lists. Granted, he hasn't been the top six forward we'd hoped he'd be this season but he's been real solid on our third line, particularly on the defensive side of the puck. He's been using his size more then ever this season and has started playing with a bit of an edge and though it's not enough, it's something we've all identified as a team need. Given his age and size, if he continues to develop his physical game he could become a real solid shut down forward with an offensive upside in the near future.

Will he be an annual 30 goal plus scorer for us? Maybe, he has all the right tools, but likely not. Even if this season is an indication of his future, on pace for roughly 30 points and 17 goals, he's still a very solid player for a third line and, given his age and skill set, there's still lots of room for growth. At this point, he's definitely considered to be in my 'young core'.
