Enough with rationalizations. Anyone who can be object has to agree that so far Pouliot has disappointed at every turn.
I actually made a little metacritic style excel sheet for the draft using a bunch of scouting sources, he was ranked at about an average of 18 overall which was 17th best of the top skaters. Lindholm was 16th and Rielly was 8th so they technically were even bigger "reaches".
