I for one completely agree with the original article and I'll consider it a damnable failure of coaching if Pouliot is let go.
Whowever we pick up off the UFA market is likely to do less well than Grabovski did in Toronto (29 goals and 29 assists), D'Agostini did in St-Louis (21 goals and 25 assists), than Sergei Kostitsyn did in Nashville (23 goals and 27 assists), or then Pouliot will do wherever he goes.
He had 13 goals and 17 assists this season, compare that to Scott Gomez, who had 7 goals and 31 assists with nearly twice the ES ice time and probably 3 to 5 times the PP ice time. Martin has a different standard for young players, it's incompetent of him, and it's bad for the long-term health of the team.
