Pouliot was not the worst player in the NHL, I think he had our best goal scoring at even strength measured per playing time, and he was not going to cost 3 million. He signed for 1.1 million with Boston.
We would have had to offer him a minimum of 1.5 million to retain his rights, and he was simply not worth it. He was lazy and talentless. Boston certainly didn't waste anytime not qualifying that useless turd either. How many players have honestly had 2 teams refuse to qualify a player in as many years? Pouliot may very well be the only one. He's a terrible player.
