    The 4th line next season should be Byron-Poehling-Weal. What’s wrong with that?

    Domi goes back on the wing if only the Habs end up signing Matt Duschene.

    Nothing wrong. It's just I don't see the purpose to sign Thompson then. I'd rather see Poehling with Laval.

    Thompson is cheap, versatile veteran depth. If he is our 13th forward then that is exactly as planned. There is almost always 1 or more forwards out with injuries so he will get his playing time.

    Dies it matter that your post could have been written every single previous year, only with the name changed?

    You need depth and it's a 23 man roster where you play 20 guys. 3 guys sit and having guys like Thompson around is a good thing. Unless you think he steals the job away from Poehling because our coach Julien, but remember, we are not a rebuilding team so teams that are fighting for the playoffs play the players who earn the job and produce.

    Based on our depth at forward, I think Poehling starts in Laval. However, I do see an outside chance Poehling starts in our top 9 as a LW

    The Habs defeated the Bruins twice last season. I think they can do the same in 2019-20, especially if they bolster the D. In fact, their chances of qualifying for the playoffs look pretty good. They're set at center. They're fair at RW and LW. They even have a potential backup goaltender in Primeau. Am I too optimistic? I don't think so.

    Having Poehling aboard is reassuring. I pray that Bergevin doesn't trade him away.

    Hopefully Mete doesn’t get jealous with this Kotkaniemi/Poehling bromance.

    Nobody saw it coming cause it rarely happens.

    Poehling isn’t going anywhere

    I agree with you that Poehling is going no where but unexpected stuff has and will continue to happen.

    There’s the Poehling’s influences. His top 5 influences. Liked his 1st tbh... Had read a lot about the ROR’s comparison. The most comparable one imo. Like between the others comparisons. If he reached his full upside, it’s feasible. Could be another one of this likes. Not the entirety tho. But some same characteristics included.

    That is kind of my point. There is no story to be had here and anyone who thinks this is a problem is either new or obtuse.

    Saw this post

    All the past stanley cup champs have had two way center who can dominate on d and score points
    Toews (2010, 2013, 2015), Bergeron (2011), Kopitar (2012, 2014), Crosby (2016, 2017), Backstrom (kind of, 2018), and now ROR (2019).

    Hopefully Poehling will be the answer we need to get a player like that

    Maybe they saw some flaws in that guy and that's why they decided to trade him?

    They saw enough to play him a few games as a teenager. I doubt a coaching staff would see flaws in a top 10 pick to justify trading. Him while he is still a teenager. A French Canadian player became available that had intriguing upside.

    But do you agree they had a lot more personal interactions with him than me and you? Thank you...

    They use a psychologist and stuff lately so maybe they actually saw some red flags, I mean I'm just speculating here but this trade will be fully buried in like 10 years ...
