June 30th you wouldn't have had 5 people who thought he was even worth a camp invite.
Before he signed, frankly, I didn't think of Ben Pouliot at all. Why should I?

If Matt Cooke was a free agent and for some reason Chiarelli signed him, then, yeah, I might question his sanity, if not outright condemn him. But Ben Pouliot isn't someone I wasted time hating. So Chia took a flyer on him, and my reaction was the same as many others': OK, let's see what he's got.

Nobody was campaigning for him to be signed, obviously, but that doesn't mean once he was, we're not willing to give him a chance.
