Oilers sign Benoit Pouliot. Inconsistent player, big man and he can score. Pouliot is a good possession player and offers size and skill.
THE VOLLMAN SLEDGEHAMMER
This is a good player, the contract ($20M over 5 years) is going to get the attention but the Oilers do in fact appear to be building four lines up front.

I haven’t mentioned this word much this spring and early summer. Balance. It is NOT here yet. But there’s some iron in these signings this morning. He should be a brilliant player for a soft minutes line.
