Jason Pominville took the path of least resistance Sunday when asked after the All-Star Game by teammate Luke Adam if he could pick one player from Team Chara to join the Sabres. Pominville's reaction might have sounded like music to his team in Buffalo, but it hardly passed for leadership.

"I don't know if I'd pick a player," Pominville said. "I like our team. I like everybody we have. I like the chemistry we have in our locker room, so I would keep it that way."

Pominville was either lying or delusional, either of which is disturbing heading into tonight's game in Montreal.
