It's very possible he preferred to go to Winnipeg as opposed to coming back here too. I don't understand why so many people just assume if the Devils match an offer the player would definitely come back.
His agent said before that he wanted to come back.
1.8 for 1 playoff goal? He'd make almost as much as the entire 4th line...
I appreciate what he did but c'mon!
If I'm not mistaken he was involved in the Game 7 OT goal vs Florida, Game 6 OT goal vs NYR, and the OT goal vs Philly. He was HUGE when he needed to be. He was on the ice for 2 series clinching goals.
Not a huge loss by any means, I hope him the best.
I liked Poni more for other things he brought than goal scoring. Only reason I gave him a hard time for the scoring ever was when he missed on an open net, and pretty much put it in Clemmensen's glove in the 3rd period of game 6 vs Florida. That and a similar situation against Bryz in OT in game 1 of the Flyers series.
