Sunday's 8-1 loss to the New York Islanders was embarrassing for the Edmonton Oilers.
"It wasn't easy, that’s for sure," said winger Benoit Pouliot. "They got those quick goals back to back and we looked down a little bit and kind of went on a free fall. It sucks, it's tough allowing so many goals like that." The Oilers had a players-only meeting after an ugly weekend that also saw them get blown out by Montreal on Saturday. Feb 8 - 10:07 AM

Benoit Pouliot scored a goal in a 5-1 loss to the Habs on Saturday.

His short-handed goal was his 12th goal of the season and his seventh point in his last seven games. He is a solid complementary player but remains too inconsistent to trust on an every games basis. The only advice we can give is to ride him while he is hot.

Benoit Pouliot was on his bum when he picked up his ninth goal of the season during Friday's 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Friday night.

Benoit Pouliot picked up two assists Saturday and is becoming fantasy relevant.

Pouliot has three goals and five points in his last four games and now has eight goals and 17 points this season. The good news is that he is now playing with Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and that can't hurt his value. He is a minus-nine but the Oilers are coming on and are becoming a half-decent team.

He has seven points this season and while he has scored between 30 and 36 points in each of the last four seasons save for the lockout year, he is on a pace for over 50 this season. Pouliot is worth picking up in most pools.
