it took both gomez and cammalleri some time before they answered to the media, like they are happy to be here, with some time i understood or believe the shock will always gonna make you react this way, specially when you are trading and you dont know the new team, i think we will have to see how Powlie answers on the ice before anything else.
I was looking through Pouliot's stats in the AHL. In 2006-07 (his rookie year), he had 36 pts while Foy was the leading scorer with 50. In 2007-08, the leading scorer of his team had 41 pts (record? ) and he had less obviously. Last year, the aeros had a good team and he did decent with 24 pts in 30 games. I think, the system in Minnesota is defensive. No matter how good you are , you are gonna be affected if you play with poor players or in a defensive system. Even Havlat is struggling in Minnesota right now, it makes me wonder if Minnesota was really a good place for Pouliot? Anyone?
