Why were Pouliot and Pyatt not re-signed as RFAs?

Pyatt---58-7-5-12
Pouliot---60-10-11-21
TOTALS---118-17-16-33


Other players this year who have took their place:
Leblanc---28-3-4-7
Blunden---28-2-1-3
Nokolainen---41-2-1-3
Palushaj---24-0-1-1
Engqvist---12-0-0-0
TOTALS---133-7-7-14

They let two decent young RFAs walk and become UFAs and the players who have replaced them just have not replaced their scoring.

Sadly, yes.



That's what happens when context is removed from the equation.

Pouliot was too tall for our squad.

And Pyatt had too much heart for our squad.

I was wondering when this season would hit rock bottom.

And here we are.

While Pouliot was generally not a very good player, his ES production was actually pretty good for a depth scorer. His P/60 last year on the Habs would be second behind Pacioretty.

I'd go with Pouliot was the only one to knockout a guy in a fight in years....we had to let him go with the Bruins.

Seriously, we CANNOT in this team work with guys who has the lazy label. WE CAN'T. So might as well let them go and see them flourish elsewhere.

This is your Montreal Canadiens! The greatest farm team of the NHL!!!

To be fair, I think Pouliot is actually on a worse pace this year than he was last year with us.

So that makes one out of how many?

Because every ****ing one of you cried your heart out about how Tom freaking Pyatt couldn't put a goal in an open net, and how Benoit mother****ing Pouliot couldn't take a shift without falling on his ass.

This ****ing city man. The ****ing people in this city man. Unbelievable.

It was David ****ing Krejci man. He sure is flourishing in Boston, I think the ice cleanliness is up since he signed there and he still scores some highlight goals with droughts in between. Flourishing I tell you.

i don't think the issue is so much that the Habs let Pyatt/Pouliot go for nothing...

the issue is more so that they were replaced with arguably lesser players (one of which, Noke, we had to trade assets -however small- to obtain).


no where near as troublesome as the "big" blunders, such as trading for Kaberle, but yet another example that this management team does a piss-poor job at evaluating & managing the assets it has.


Pyatt & Pouliot are better assets to have on the NHL roster than Noke & Engqvist/Palushaj... cap hit about the same... So how do you reason that Gauthier did well by dropping the more talented/established players, while giving up a 7th rd pick & AHL prospect in the process?

bad asset management.

Pouilot has 21 points in 60 games. Do you understand what the word flourish means?

Let's go back to square one...

draft Latendresse

Let him play two full seasons at the Q level + 1 AHL season if needed

Improve his skating and diet

at the end: Get a better player

Keep him.

If Gauthier is smart I hope he explained to Andrei the situation he was facing and they needed to have a rebuild but they would be more then happy to bring him back next season.The worst thing that could have happened is that Andrei sucked and Gauthier could just tell him he lied,the best situation,he has this crazy playoffs and gives us a home discount

Pouliot's spot was taken by Desharnais and Cole coming in. The top 9 was supposed to be AK Eller DD Cole Pacioretty Gomez Plekanec Cammy and Gionta.

The 4th line was to have Darche White Moen on the wings, Pyatt is not an upgrade on any of those guys. Engqvist and Nokelainen are centers who replaced Halpern who wanted to play at home in Washington.

Pyatt and Pouliot were both RFAs. You think Gauthier never offered them to other teams before letting them go for free?

Nobody wanted to trade for them. Deal with it.

They may be factors beyond his control, but Latendresse has played 27 games in the last two years. He's not exactly proving himself as an asset we should be kicking ourselves for losing either...
