If any other team in the Pacific had a right side of Myers, Hamonic and Poolman, we'd all laugh at how weak they were. 

What's weak about it, exactly?  What don't you like about those players?

Do people think you're going to get a solid 5/6 guy for nothing in FA?  He brings stability to the 5/6 spot rather than an endless parade of bottom pairing fillets players on the cheap

 

The money is fine IMO, I think its the term that is a little dicey. That said it tells me he had other interest. 

 

I get where @48MPHSlapShot is coming from in that alot of the feedback I've seen hasn't been enthusiastic either. But he definitely fills a need, & we aren't breaking the bank here.

Winnipeg fans absolutely hate this guy, and there's a reason their management group felt the need to completely re-vamp their D core this offseason.

Hated is a strong word. More like they weren't happy with his play. But Poolman was poorly coached, put in tough spots. He won't have that here. He's a bottom pairing guy, who will do well under Shaw.

Would still like to add another top 4 D man.

 

Poolman can fill the role that Benn did the last couple years.

 

The way I see things now.

 

OEL - UFA/Trade

Hughes Hamonic

Rathbone Myers

 

Juolevi Poolman

 

Need a better top 4 guy IMO

And then they went out and paid assets for Dillon and Schmidt.

 

Makes you wonder..

Winnipeg's my 2nd favourite team and I will say that I don't fully like the moves they made for their D core. It's very risky for them.

He'll be playing in our top 4.

 

We wouldn't have given him 4 years and 2.5M annually to play the 7th D role.

I don't think it's so fine if it means pushing Myers into a top 4, maybe even a top 2 position. 

Myers was always going to be a top 4 guy this season imo, but we'll see. Lots of time left to sign players or make trades.

Jamie should maybe pull his head out of his ass and realize that this is not a top 4 defenseman signing. Or maybe you could pull your head out of his ass?

He was mentioning that Poolman was a top four on very bad defence In Winnipeg team
