Actually, it's the Curse of the Penguins Franchise for 44 years in having the careers of an amazing number of stars or potential stars ruined or drastically shortened due to ridiculously unfortunate injuries and circumstances. To wit: Briere, Bianchin, Larouche, Edur, Faubert, Belanger, Lemieux, Jagr, Stojanov, Crosby.
The NHL career of Alek Stojanov, a first round pick acquired in a trade for Hall of Famer-to-be Marcus Naslund, was ruined by a shoulder injury from an auto accident. He was expected to become a Bob Probert type enforcer with scoring talent.
It would not surprise me in the least if we can ultimately add Pouliot's name to the list.
