Poni to Winnipeg

If Poni really wanted to go to Winnipeg, nothing can stop him, but I don't see how this isn't a huge value win for WPG. Ponikarovsky immediately transformed the bottom 6 from terrible to decent.

Its a good signing at a good price, can't fault Winnipeg for doing it. Maybe he just didnt want to stay in this area and/or wanted to go back with Antropov.

I liked him and what he brought but he seemed to fizzle out after a great start.

3rd line was a mess all year anyway. Definitely our worst line.

Did you watch this team at all before the playoffs? The fourth line was way worse because it took a year to find the right players.

I kind of feel like Poni just got forgotten with the current Parise and Marty drama. If it was only going to take about 1.8mil to sign him, why didn't the Devils show more interest in resigning him? Odd by Lou.

He may not have wanted to stay. Can't always lay blame on us. He was traded here. I also believe he'll also be playing on a better line in Winnipeg, in terms of playing time and such. Id not be surprised to see him paired with Antropov.

I remember Poni, Zubs, and Bernier playing good together for a while but after they broke that up not much came from the third line. The third line was never really set either until the fourth was set.

how did we not put up 1.8 for him....saving it for parise

Again. We don't know the details. We very well could've put in an offer and he still WANTED to leave. Not everybody wants to stay in NJ, whether we're winning or not. We've never been a premier free agency lure.
