Pouliot is a guy taht has to generate offense to be worth dressing each night as he is below average defensively and does not play any other role(faceoffs, shot blocks, PK etc).
Martin always give up on guys when they don't fit in his system. Look at what happened with Lats and Lappy. They were on fire under Carbo and dropped quickly under Martin because they were not doing what he wanted them to do.
