Just wondering what you guys think of his play? Lately I thought he's getting the chances, but just not putting them in, and obviously after a few injuries Pouliot is benefited and getting more minutes.
I hope he will start capitalising his chances and breakout this/next year.
"... Two things that used to driving me absolutely more insane than I already am about Pouliot: He drives the net with the stick at his waste, so how the heck are you going to shoot when the puck comes? And, when he drives the net, instead of stopping, he continues past instead of parking himself there."
With Belanger out Pouliot should suit up tonight against Dallas.
Correction: Belanger did suit and Pouliot skated on a line with Noland and Boogie.
TR sat out Sheppard in favor of Pouliot. (good choice). Pouliot doesn't always give you his best effort, but at least he doesn't shot the puck like a girl.
He's in the coaches doghouse, but he's been one of our best players early on and deserves more ice time IMO.
That doesn't really make too much sense if he has been one of the best players on the ice. Its pretty evident to those who I've spoken with, Benny at practice is like watching Junior High players play with no direction. He is leaps and bounds better than Sheppard, but I think at this current point Fletcher and Richards are both trying to figure out a way to give these two kids new homes before the end of the year. I wouldn't mind keeping Pouliot honestly, but for the ice time he would get....he's useless.
