What used to be known as a "3rd line player" is what we today classify as a 4th liner, and what used to be a 4th liner is no longer an NHL caliber player.
This. Exactly this; couldn't have said it any better.
Even when Pouliot was struggling I liked his game and knew there was more to be had from him. Props to AV and staff for sticking with him and coaching some of the stupid mistakes out of his game as well
