Also, just curious: Has Pominville really been as much of a trainwreck as it seems from what I've read on here? I haven't been able to watch too many games recently (have missed probably at least the last 5-6) but he looked OK when I last watched him IIRC. Normally he's consistently good defensively even when he's not getting points, but it sounds like he's been coughing the puck up a lot
He is definitely not playing his best hockey. Losing too many battles for the puck and way too many giveaways.
