Oilers Uncover MAP

To solve all of their goaltending troubles, the Oilers have called up their #1 2003 draft choice (22nd overall) Marc-Antoine Pouliot from Hamilton. You might recall this as the pick that caused Pierre McGuire's head to explode because they selected him over Zach Parise.

I wish I knew how he has been doing this year, but the CinO boys haven't updated the prospect stats in a long, long, long time.

I jest, of course, Pouliot is having a fine season with 46 points (15 goals) in 65 games. Not too shabby for a 20-year old 1st year pro.

Part of the reason the Oilers Borgbrain selected Pouliot is that he was the only player to continue to play hard and score on the atrocious pre-Crosby Rimouski Oceanic. Let's hope he can guilt a little teammate accountability in his first appearance in Da Show.


(I think you'll find the real reason for Pouliot's promotion is connected to the number of shifts Rem the Gem was able to skate last night--viz., 3.)
