Benoit Pouliot has won the NHL equivalent of lotto! How a guy who has never scored more than 16 goals in his NHL career can land a 5 year deal at 4 million a season is mind-numbing.

The Edmonton Oilers traded away an excellent player like Sam Gagner and sign a journeyman to a deal like that? I’m sorry but this is exactly why Glen Sather will not do much today if teams spend like drunken sailors.
Edm has to overpay but 20 million for Pouliot??? Start ur buyout papers now!!!!

In addition, defense should fly off the board as Ehrhoff is gone. Stralman is probably on his way to Detroit soon.
