Lol yes, it's a personal vendetta against Ponich. Nothing to do with his snail-like skating pace and laughable decision making. I watched him quite a bit in Peoria last year, and he was just so frustrating to watch. The Blues would love for him to pan out and become a useful NHLer, but that seems unlikely at this point.
