I was one of the biggest supporters of trading Pomms this past offseason. Mostly to LA in a deal fir Stoll.

Glad to eat my words but......

Not in the second half of last year, or ever before has Jason Pominville ever played like this. Neither in point production, leadership, confidence, physical play, two way, power play....any aspect of the game. Yes, he 'quietly' put up points but he never was a dominant force on the ice.

This year he has been.

Every word I've said about Pomms, you could say about Vanek too.

The biggest problem this team had the last 3-4 years, was players stepping up and being leaders, none of us thought our core was leadership material....none of us. We talked about brining back Griere for that....hahaha... What a joke that would have been. For the first time in years I see we do have leaders on the team, I'll even throw kudos to Gausted.

Pomms has really taken over the team. Good for him, good for us and I'm happy I'm eating my words!
