The Penguins' front office is extremely high on prospect Derrick Pouliot and refused to trade him for established players before the NHL's trade deadline last week.
Among those turned down by the Flyers for Pouliot, according to reports, was Vancouver forward Ryan Kesler. What a defense pair Pouliot could potentially give the Pens with Olli Maatta. And Maatta can't wait for that to happen. Perhaps no one is as excited about the idea of Pouliot joining the Pens as Maatta. "I just know how good of a guy (Pouliot) is off the ice," Maatta said. "So, yeah, I'd like to have him here. He has some unbelievable skill. I saw it when we played against one another in junior hockey and at training camp.I can learn from him. I think we can help each other." Maatta, 19 and the No. 22 pick two years ago, has emerged as a Calder Trophy (top rookie) candidate. Pouliot, 20 and the No. 8 pick from 2012, is the Pens' "top prospect not in the NHL," said Tom Fitzgerald, Pittsburgh's assistant general manager. Mar 13 - 10:29 AM
