I don't see the similarities TBH, other than that they are right handed shots playing right wing and captained a NY state franchise.

Some interesting tweets from Eric Tulsky regarding Pommes Frites' contract extension:

Prob goes without saying that a contract covering ages 31-35 is better in the near term than the long term, but Pominville's interesting...

Pominville's coring is almost dead flat (even strength pts/60 of 2.2, 2.2, 2.2, 2.2, 2.1 the last 5 yrs), which looks encouraging...

But on-ice sh% (which has a lot of luck to it and heavily drives points) has gone 8.4% - 8.6% - 7.9% - 9.4% - 10.9%

Is Pominville in a sneaky decline that's been masked by shooting percentage variance? Given his age, I'm inclined to bet yes.
