Among others, last year's first round pick (4th overall) Benoit Pouliot was sent down to AHL Houston yesterday. During training camp Benoit showed some flashes of what made him such a high pick, but seemed to get on Jacques' bad side by not playing adequate defense. Pouliot played only 9 minutes in the last pre-season game against Chicago and Lemaire had this to say -- "It's the first time I liked what he did." Hardly words of praise from the big guy. Jason "Captain" Morgan, Peter Olvecky, Erik Reitz and Roman Voloshenko were also sent down.
