I think he's one of the best body checkers on the Kings in terms of separating players from the puck. It's unfortunate that he doesn't have the numbers to go along with his heavy play as he'd be worth his salary had he been producing more. Surprisingly, the depth of this team has pushed him down the depth charts.

Seeing how he was used in Toronto, Poni is a complimentary winger that can lurk in the shadows of more talented linemates. However, on the Kings, he's been relegated to checking duties, and has done an admirable job in that role. That still doesn't warrant him a $3M+ salary.
