Pouliot was also ranked as a 2nd rd prospect by some agencies. I know Redline was not a fan of his at all.

Where as Monahan is a consensus top 10 pick.

Also Monahan is lauded for his hockey IQ....I don't recall Pouliot being so.

I've watched Monahan....no way he is going to bust. At worst he's Horcoff but he is damn good and will be much better. Kids the complete package. And for Edm there is no better prospect than him as he fills so many needs for us. Nuge and Monahan as a 1-2 punch would setup the Oil nicely.

Both could play 20+ min (so most of the game we could have one of them on the ice controlling the game) and they can be used in all situations. Our specialty teams would be set (pp and pk). Monahan would be ideal in games we are ahead and need to have puck possession and win key faceoffs. And with his offensive ability it wouldn't just be in a shutdown role.

Just makes so much sense for us. I'm really hoping we get him.
