Ill be at the Winterhawks/Giants game next Friday so Im looking forward to seeing how he plays.
A poster (Renegade Stylings) in the prospects forum had this to say when I inquired about Pouliot in the Seth Jones thread:
I will say that I watched Portland a bunch early in the season and he was very good. Stood out a lot, made some great rushes and was much more physical than I ever saw from him.
The last couple viewings of Portland he hasn't been as noticeable to me. But with their talent on D it's pretty easy to get a bit lost in the shuffle. Still confident he will be a great pro and potentially an elite offensive D.
