Really, I'd be fine with another Gogo. Pouliot's upside is probably at least a better Gogo, and I'd be happy with that. My only issue is that Pouliot isn't a really big shooter (as in he doesn't have a hard shot like Morrow), and he is more of a passer. We need someone with a cannon, not another passer. Then again, we have Morrow, who (hopefully) will develop like he's supposed to.
And I don't really care if Pouliot would play on the PK, because we will have Harrington, Dumoulin (he's huge), Letang and Despres on the PK.
