Pouliot was a healthy scratch on a lot of nights and had been playing in the A the year prior. That was a brutal deal.

Not that we could've gotten a legit top 6 player for Lats. That's why you don't deal youngsters you feel have a good ceiling, because you'll never get fair value unless they're playing up to their potential.
