I don't think he's confident enough for top 6 duties yet.
Looking at the past season, it appears to me (I don't have the stats to back this up, maybe one of you more stat minded people can show if my reasoning is right or wrong) that Pouliot's best two spans of the season where back on the PHD line and then with Desharnais and Darche.
Common factor: Darche. Maybe its his work ethic, maybe they just get along, or maybe it's his presence in front of the net that assists Pouliot's signature shot from the top of the left face off circle reach the net.
He's an up and down player, when he's up he's great but when he's down, man is he down.
Read your post after I wrote mine. I totally agree with you.
