Yeah, 'cause that's for the next 10 years....I would have taken the gamble that the 2M of difference between both salaries, 'cause by keeping Pouliot it actually means you have to pay him..., could have been a nice bet, hoping he'd get his act together before his RFA year. 'Cause let say you can't sign Wiz or Hammer and that people suddenly Diaz is NOT yet NHL material, and then a guy like Weber is used on the tradefront to acquire something substantial up will need another d-man. Clearly Barker is not necessarily THE solution but you do have to work with what you have and it's not a gimme that you'll have all the UFA's you want....

But in the end, as I expressed it after, it was more a post about how much I can,t believe this guy never improved the way I thought he would and a blind love with the idea that with us, he'd blossom. 'Cause at one point, it has to be our turn sometimes that a dissapointing guy, plays better here than elsewhere....
