Looking over Pouliot's overall makeup, I would be pretty pleased with a Goligoski, honestly. People often forget that GoGo's offensive abilities were very, very high level. And as much flak as he got for his defensive deficiencies (and there were certainly moments)... he wasn't a complete disaster. Better than other offensive or even "two way" defensemen around the league.

If Pouliot displays the same ability with the puck at the highest level as Goligoski did... I think we'd probably have to call that a win. Depending on how much you get hung up on draft position, of course. Which could obviously turn out to be pretty important considering what was potentially left on the table.
