This is a solid signing along with Dominic Moore. Improving the bottom six was MUCH needed. And I see there are a lot of naysayers...as usual. According to AV, he said that they wanted to give some of the younger folks a shot at the roster this year. So this is perfect.
Pouliot had 20 points last year in 34 games. He missed 11 games with a sprained shoulder. He was on pace for roughly 40+ points in a normal 82 game season. That is solid depth for the rangers. He had 32 points the prior year in 74 games, a career high for him. 30 points the year before that. His game has been improving. He is only 26 years old. Good move by sather.
With AV saying he's gonna give young guys a shot and adding a couple of legit 3rd liners here, we have something we haven't had in a long time: competition for bottom 6 spots. Now maybe we won't have to call up some corpse from Scrubford when there's an injury.
