Benoit Pouliot is this year's obligatory enigma

Seems like every year we reserve at least one roster spot for a skilled former 1st round pick whose disappearing act made previous teams pull their hair out.

2013 - Benoit Pouliot
2012 - Derick Brassard
2011 - Wojtek Wolski
2010 - Alex Frolov
2009 - Chris Higgins
2008 - Nik Antropov
2007 - Marcel Hossa
2006 - Marcel Hossa
2005 - Marcel Hossa

Antropov worked out pretty well and not re-signing him was a decent-sized mistake. Brassard looked great under Torts but has reverted back to his old ways. The other guys, well, nothing but hair pulling. You could probably include Erik Christensen and Enver Lisin but they weren't first round picks.
