Why would Pominville asks for that? He just extended with the Wild for 5 additional years.
It's not like Montreal has a much better chance at a cup run than Minny either.
Edit: Also, do we really want Pominville? At this point, Pacioretty is the superior player out of the two, and assuming we resign Gionta (which I'm fairly confident will sadly happen) we don't have the cap room for redundancy.
Even if that's the case, sadly, I think Vanek's wife has a bigger say on where they live than does Pominville.
If you were Vanek's wife, would you want your NHL superstar, millionaire husband going out downtown Montreal?? I don't think so. Also, how would Montreal fit Vanek, PK, Markov and Pominville under the cap next year?
Hopefully he can help us get deep into the playoffs but I don't think he'll be back next season even though I'd love to have him back. He's what hat we need on this team.
Internet posters that thinks they knows what other human beings they know nothing about thinks makes me
