And Colton Gillies and James Sheppard aren't either. They are in the NHL, playing.

Partly. The sky was the limit for Pouliot. He had the tools, the talent and the skills. But he just never could put them together long enough to make an impact. There are days where you look at Pouliot and go, wow! That's why he was drafted 4th overall. And then there are days where you look at Pouliot and go, how the hell did he even make it?

Steve Yzerman signed him to a $1.8 mil contract for 2012-13 and he already has 5 goals and 10 points this year
Two things; it's Tampa Bay and two it's a weird, weird season. Pouliot is good for 30-35 points but he was seen as much more than that.

And why is that? Because he's on the fourth line and not asked to do much.
