Anyone willing on taking a flyer on Benoit Pouliot, maybe a 3rd round pick for him? OBO

He just doesn't fit with us anymore and maybe a team who needs some offense and could be willing to give him some ice time, like a colorado

I could see maybe Atlanta being willing to give him a shot.

Benoit has the talent and when he was traded he had the 'Mario Star Power' but that wore off. He just doesn't have a high enough compete level--night in and night out. All the talent in the world doesn't make up for a lack of drive.

For a 3rd rounder I wouldn't mind giving him a shot with the Pens. If the asking price is higher than that then no thanks.

Ben Poo needs a people's coach who will tell him good job after and during every game. He quickly goes into self doubt mode when he doesn't have that. Any team with a coach like that should take him for a third. You'll get a much better player than that third would yield.

He needs to work most on his skating and balance. Falls down too often. Takes stupid penalties. But he has a ton of talent and good size and hands. Right now he has no value. Habs may as well hold onto him and see if he can raise his game next season.

Same thing from an Islanders POV, wouldn't give mtl anything more than a 3rd.

Pouliot-Bailey-Comeau is one hell of a good 3rd line. Considering Long Island is not a prime UFA destination, it would ensure the islanders would fill their top 9 forward depth need via trade versus trying to sign upshall or joel ward.
