Pouliot probably needs a coach who won't give up on him at the first sign of trouble. Martin isn't that coach.

But we have little talent on the wings. Giving up on Pouliot would be stupid, we have few young wingers with the potential to be decent scorers.

The AK pick was a mistake, there is no other way to look at it.

You don't select a high risk player in the first round -- especially not an European -- when there are plenty of players available who have a very high ceiling and are much safer picks. The 2003 draft was not one in which Timmins could afford to take a risk.
