I'm surprised someone wanted Ponikarovsky! But I hope this doesn't start the 'Canes firesale, we are only ten points out of first place in the Southeast division.
I'm not. He has size, even if he's not physical in the slightest that's still an asset at the NHL level.
I don't think this is a sign of much of anything though. He was playing 4th line here of late. Brett Sutter can do that just as effectively at less then 1/2 the price. It could also open room for one of the kids in the top 9.
