3. AK is a UFA at end of year, probably will lose him for nothing
4. Pouliot speaks french
5. Pouliot can fight

Cons:

I can't think of any since I find their talent level the same, and they are both inconsistent.
Your 5 Pros are weak!

We don't need the cap space.
AK gotten us a 2nd rounder, you know this?
If AK has a decent year and Habs feel they may lose him, they will get a decent return at the deadline over a trade in the summer that just past.
Pouliot speaking French has no Pro or added bonus to the success of the team.
Pouliot can fight, really? Who the Krejci's of the NHL???

Their talent levels are way different. AK has a great shot, can make his own space and plays the physical game...Pouliot did none of that, and did that very consistently.

Pouliot was a healthy scratch already for Boston, says a lot about him and his career.
