Bingo! I'm a Penguins fan but partly Wild-fan now after the trade. I've been following Pominville since the draft of 2001 and he sure is deceptive. He can also when you least expect it make a great assist from behind the net, turning around looking half goofy but quick and surely the puck lays there in the net afterwards. It's more about the situation than the performance really. Before the draft scouts said bad things about his strenght, balance, toughness and even skating for being a little guy, but look at them now.

Edit: I must say that i'm happy that he went to the Wild though, partly becouse they are in the Western and i'm having trouble rooting for more than one team in the Eastern, but aforemost all becouse of Minnesotas ties to Sweden and also i do like many players on your roster. Also team colors.
