Also, he has a points per game average of .246 here. In Carolina it is .313. That is not even close to twice the rate.
Finally, Darryl Sutter hasn't changed the system in LA much, even the players have said as such. Just changed a few things and changed the mentality. Poni sucked in our system and he will suck again, just as he has sucked everywhere but Toronto in his career.
....and he's also a huge upgrade over Richardson & Lewis.
He's got more points than both those guys combined. Plus he's large and can screen the goalie more efficiently than those guys.
If Poni "sucks", I'd really hate to hear your assessment of Richardson & Lewis.
