A team that had the success they had because they have some pretty depth. It's not like Pouliot wasn't dressed playing for Ottawa....

I tell you sometimes, double standards rides a whole lot. We shouldn't panic after 1 game but Julien doesn't play Pouliot after game 1 and he thinks Pouliot is an AHL'er....

Again, I said that I think he could flourish. Didn't say he will. And didn't say that flourish means top league scorer. In Pouliot's case, just being a regular as the season progresses and have a 15 goals - 35 points-40 points regularly for that season and the seasons to come will be flourishing. Jury is still out though big time. But so is the pure talent.
On the flip side though, does he really bring anything you can't get out of a Darche type player? I used to think he did but now I'm starting to think that he doesn't have it in him.
