I disagree with you. Pulkinnen is not an NHL caliber player, unfortunately. He's too one-dimensional and telegraphs his moves way too much.
Yet he has more goals than either Richards or Helm.
It's funny because a year ago both were "untouchable" to some people around here.
No they weren't. Everyone has prospects they'd rather not trade, but that doesn't mean untouchable. Usually it's because those people think we have better trade options and/or the expected return isn't worth it.
