Think about that for a second. In game 7 of the playoffs the coach decided a one armed rookie was better than Pouliot. Martin didn't become one of the winningest coaches in history by being a poor evaluator of talent. Face it. Pouliot sucks, and lacks the drive to succeed.
Very little truth to this post but tons of despise for the the player for sure. I think that we got it the first time you went on a rant. No need to keep raging about it, we know how you feel.

To the others, it's unfortunate that we have fans from the same team who can't see any positive in one of our player, acting like he slept with their mother!

Unfortunately, not every fans can read the game correctly..

Dump him,sign Torres. Eller-AK -Torres. Great 3rd line.Torres is worth more than AK but would come cheaper

We don't need more 3rd and 4th line line wingers. Although Torres would be an upgrade on Moen I suppose, but that's not the biggest problem with the team.

I'd trade down first round picks with Edmonton to get Torres' last contract year.

It's the biggest problem that can be fixed,though. We aren't getting a top 6 winger anytime soon.We don't have the assets to acquire one. Unless you want to trade PK.

Pouliot's Future

The Canadiens and Pouliot haven't met to consider talking contract talks. Benoit Pouliot RFA status has not been tendered and will not. You will most likely not see Pouliot in a Habs jersey in the foreseen future.

I dont think there needs to even be a discussion. Pouliot is RFA.

He only needs to be qualified. I dont think they even need to discuss that too much (I could be wrong)

Typically the rfa renewals come in droves AFTER the playoffs are done...

Contracts are for guys who are UFA, or need to discuss a significant raise... Something Pouliot hasnt warranted this year.

Pouliot was probably told what to work out, and told to keep in touch at some point in the summer.

My friend's uncle's brother's sister in law's sister's niece is dating a young boy whose father once saw Bob Gainey... on TV.

They're not going to let Pouliot walk for free. That would be pretty stupid.

Does anyone know the deadline for qualifying offers? I see it was June 28th in 2010, but I can't find it for 2011...

Why would we not re-sign Pouliot?? He'll be cheap with great potential upside. Would be rather stupid to give him up for free..

That's exactly what you said - you said he will not be offered a contract!

He will most likely start the year unless his rights are traded. Habs never let go of a RFA without trading them or seeing them through their entire RFA period. It is extremely rare that they let go of a RFA by not tending a qualifying offer, especially a player like Pouliot who has better stats than others.

Oh yeah, let's not tender a 6'3", 199 lbs 24-year old winger. That sounds like a great idea.

Look Pouliot has his faults, but the only way he won't be in camp is if he's traded. There's no real need to negotiate with him beyond qualifying him right now. He's likely to accept his QO at this point anyway. For a young 30-point player that MIGHT be able to get hot and fit into the top 6 in case of injuries, $1M + is a reasonable price.

What's Pouliot's QO? Is it +10%?

you mean like Kostitsyn's?

look, a young guy with that talent, and a fire lit under his a** could really help the team out. And Torres? I really doubt he leaves Vancouver

I never wanted SK booted out.He's the better and more versatile and gritty Kost IMO. BP hasn't done a thing since the first 20 games with us. i don't understand how a guy can just TOTALLY DISAPPEAR in the playoffs like he has the last two years.I don't want another Boyd trade,but I'd be all for replacing him with a tough bottom 6 player.But I'd rather dump Pyatt and Halpern first
