Who cares who was on what board? Pouliot is averaging over a PPG, and as a D, that's incredible. Instead of complaining that player X would be better than him, people need to be happy that we got an incredible D that is an extremely rare kind of player. He's on a 7 game point streak, where he has 12 points over it. AS A D! Those numbers are fantastic for a F, almost unheard of for a D.
I've watched his last 3 games, and he has been solid in his own end. As I watch him, I can't stop from making Letang comparisons. He may not be the biggest/most physical D, but damn, he sees the ice so well, at both ends of the ice. The ONLY issue that anyone could justly say is about his size, but that's essentially knocking Letang as well.
