Maybe they just weren't on the same page on the ice. I remember Mario's 5 goal game against the Blues. On one PP Zubov didn't get him the puck and Lemieux gave him some eye daggers.
Getting back to Pouliot...
why do people attack his physical game?
He might not be a big splashy hitter but he gets involved and rubs out players along the boards. He's not wimpy by any means.
Exactly. He isnt going to destroy guys out there but as you said, he gets involved and is also doing it more often. He has a fairly stocky frame so he will be able to use that to his advantage. It has been stated multile times by himself and the coach that adding a more physical side is important
