I'm so thankful Poile was being level headed about this season and didn't trade a high first for a 30 year old 2nd line tweeter and a shot at a eighth place spot at best.
Yeah, only time will tell. I hope when next yr rolls around and we see the 31 yo Gaborik and 30 yo Pominville (2nd line tweeter) scoring at a point per rate, it is not against us. (Won't be Gaborik due to CBJ moving east) I really am going to hate seeing MW come to Smashville with Suter/Parise and now Pominville several times a yr, unless we are kicking their butts!
