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?

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.
Think you two are just arguing over a bit of miscommunication on the word "failure".

He is a failure when you are looking what he can do potential and what he is willing to develop himself into. He isn't a failure when you consider he is a regular NHLer. Both can be right at the same time.
