“Benoit Pouliot is not a top-six forward” is a phrase which has some currency in its various forms in Edmonton right now. It’s wrong, but it persists because the average person doesn’t walk around with a 180-name list of top-six NHL forwards (six forwards multiplied by 30 teams).
Let’s take a look at where Pouliot would rank on such a list.

It's been 37 games... Can you believe it? From the time that Connor McDavid went down on November 2nd, we've waited 37 McDavidless games for his return. Needless to say, it's been tough. Fortunately, the wait is nearly over and we're celebrating with a Photoshop contest.

The Oilers are in the midst of the all-star break. To me this only means one thing, Connor McDavid is coming back and soon. Frankly Connor McDavid's return is the only thing any of us should be thinking about. It's pretty much the only thing keeping me from rolling over and dying from my monthly cold. It's hard to believe we have been without McDavid for 37 games. That means you guys have had to read 12 consecutive injury reports with me whining about McDavid's collarbone. I am happy to announce that this will be the final injury report that includes Connor McDavid, as he is set to return next game on February 2nd.

Connor McDavid is officially in the nest. He won’t play with the Bakersfield Condors, but he will get into a series of practices and game-day skates just as he did on Tuesday ahead of the Condors game against the Manitoba Moose.

Teammates called him Chow, but fans dubbed him the Polish Prince. He dated supermodels and married Bond girl Izabella Scorupco. Now retired after 14 seasons twirling around the NHL, he spends much of his time just being cool and golfing as a member of the PGA back home in Poland.
