I'd prefer Pouliot rather than Powe/Rupp/Asham too, but I'd prefer players like Clutterbuck, Bickell, etc. over Pouliot, even if those players scored less than him.
Absolutely but those players cost
Clutterbuck: Top prospect
Bickell - 4m/yr
Clarkson - 5m/yr

In terms of overall team construction I'd rather have someone like Pouliot for 1.3M and then be able to use that 2.5-3.5M savings to build a better top 6/top 4

But yea of course, if you happen to get lucky and develop one of them that's the best scenario but honestly in that scenario you should just trade the guy since they clearly are worth a ridiculous amount.
