I thought he was injured a few weeks ago? I can't remember exactly.
Nah, he was playing up until recently. . .
OT, but I saw Pouliot play a few weeks ago vs Cape Breton (one of the powerhouse teams in the Q) and he was fantastic. Whoever said this guy was soft is nuts. He was killing penalties, playing the powerplay, came out of the corner with the puck 90% of the time, scored a goal and was strong on faceoffs.
I really like the Gagne comparison I saw on HF awhile back.
The first game he's missed in the last two weeks was the Oct. 29 game against Drummondville. Rimouski won the game 6-2 and Crosby had 3 assists that game.
Pouliot played the next game against Moncton and registered 2 goals and 1 assist I believe. Since then, Pouliot has not played a game due to his injury.
Incidentally, Rimouski has lost its last 3 games and been outscored a total of 19-7. Crosby, for the last 2 games, has been shut down for the most part only getting a single assist. Me thinks Rimouski is hurting without Pouliot taking the pressure off the Crosby line.
