I don't really get the hate for Pouliot.

Last year he was expected to be a bottom 6 player that could put up some points with moderate ES ice time, and he chipped in with 30 points. Sure he has to work on his defensive game a bit, but last year was still his first full year in the league. He's costing us less than $1.5M to provide some offense on our bottom lines, I personally think we need players like him in depth scoring roles to make up for the fact that we don't have any superstar offensive players (plz avoid Jagr comments).

I think he's a good fit on a 3rd/4th line with someone like Eller or Desharnais, especially if he comes back driven to develop his defensive/physical side a bit more this year.
