The Bruins have signed former 4th overall pick Benoit Pouliot to a 1 year deal worth 1.1 million. He is nothing more than a body at this point. He will probably be the 12/13th forward with Paille and Thornton. It’s a low risk, high reward signing. He could turn out to be a 20 goal scorer, or he could continue to be a 10-20-30 guy. This is not the guy to replace Recchi or Ryder, so no need to freak out if you are against the signing. It’s the equivalent to signing Cam Barker, or Nikolai Zherdev. Pouliot has talent, it’s just up to him if he is going to put it together.
