Derrick Pouliot took plenty of skating lessons in the off-season and looks quicker in training camp.
Pouliot is trying to grab a spot on the Canucks blueline and needs to improve his quickness and skating, something it looks like he has taken care of in the off-season. "I was very hard on him — but he took it all and no problems at all," his skating coach Barb Aidelbaum said. "And he was open to anything. If he did something wrong, it was doing it again and again and again. Once it was corrected, it was repeat, repeat, repeat. I looked how he skated in the first period and how he skated at the end. Sometimes, when players are tired, body position and stances change and that affects everything. He’s now faster forward, backward and sideways. We first worked on technique, then power and then speed and then putting it together in a conditioning program." Look for a 25-30 point season from Pouliot. Sep 17 - 8:38 AM
