How stupid was it to let Benoit Pouliot walk?

I was as big of a Pouliot fan & supporter as anyone, and was disappointed to see him go - but I don't think he's really a $1.8m/season player.
He's putting up great numbers now because of his linemates and with how snakebit Kelly & (to a much-less-extent) Peverley have been, Pouliot would be producing at his normal career pace & people would be screaming for an upgrade at that spot if he was still a Bruin.
And I don't think they let Pouliot go just to make room for Caron (as OP suggested) - they let Pouliot go because TB offered him a deal that was worth more than Boston wanted to pay him. So unless they could convince him to stay in town for less money, he wasn't going to be brought back.
