Derrick Pouliot | #5 | D

Recommended Posts

If not for the Canucks complete lack of quality defenceman Pouliot has been given 2 seasons of valuable prime time NHL minutes. I think he has grown just enough to figure out how to stick around the league for the next 5-6 years after the Canucks cut him loose. It’s a shame we couldn’t have invested that time into another player who is part of the Canucks future. It could very well be Sautner’s time to take over. If so , so long to the Poo.

There is no way this bozo gets another NHL cheque after this season

 

What a horrendous horrendous excuse for an NHLer. Jim Benning, you suck man

We could get Haydn Fleury to make us feel better about Virtanen! He's even getting valuable playoff experience as we speak! Unlike Pouliot, he was drafted 7th overall so he should be much better.... ;)

Lou's too busy in the loo to go with poo. He got told to go green and thought that meant to go to the outhouse. Now he's complaining about lack of time out of the outhouse....

As happy as I am to not see him back, can someone please explain to me why we wouldn't do a qualify and trade for a 4th scenario?

He's not worth a 4th? I'm not sure he'd get any picks right now.

Technically we could still trade his rights up to June 30th if there's any interest. Probably not much difference in value either (a 7th, maybe 6th...?).

Yeah fine... A 4th is optimistic.  But if we could get anything at all, I figured it would make sense to at least qualify him.

Benning probably tried to trade him with no success.  If they qualify him they'll have no choice than to honour the contract even if there are no takers.  He's on a 1-way at 1.1M and it uses up a contract spot.  This season the Canucks were right up at the 50 contract limit.

Adios! Had a few good moments, but mostly a disaster here in Vancouver, especially his second season. Best of luck in St. Louis.
