He had a thunderous hit on his first shift, played well defensively, kept plays alive, used his reach to break up plays and dangle around him, he was honestly just fun to watch. I hope he keeps his chemistry going with Seguin because Seguin could use a good winger to feed his passes to.

Overall I like what I'm seeing and if he keeps it going I'll be happy for Benoit that he put it together, he's a good guy with a sad story from juniors and im just pulling for him.
Who were they getting matched up against though? The main problem with Pouliot is he's only effected when getting sheltered from tough minutes. His flaws become more glaring if he is ever asked to move up the lineup. That Montreal had Desharnais and Eller for that role going into this season probably played a major role in him getting cut.
