[TB/BOS] Benoit Pouliot for Ouellet and a 5th

RenlavoieRDS just tweeted that we got benoit pouliot from boston. I think that could be a solid pick up. Boucher should be able to work wonders with him

Benoit Pouliot really happy to be traded to Tampa. Lightning think they could do with Ben what they did with Teddy Purcell.

Anytime you can add a young player who can chip in around 15 goals for just a 5th you gotta do it.

He also had a Stamkosian 5 game winning goals out of 16 total.

Good, we needed 3rd line scoring.

He was 4th overall. After 257 NHL is considered a bust?

Seems Wild, Habs and Bruins gave up on him

He was decent for the B's last year. He's not a player who's going to hit everything that moves (or at all) but he's got some offense to his game; something we sorely lacked on the 3rd line last year.

I like this.

He's a legit NHLer, so is he a bust? Only in the sense that he wouldn't have been drafted 4th if it was known then he'd top out as a depth FW. Not sure the Bruins gave up on him. They used him, from the get-go, on the bottom lines. Think it's just a matter of his being due for a raise and having plenty of options to replace him with.

Based on what they thought he would be? Sure.

Boston took him for what he was... a depth forward with good hands that can actually pot some timely goals. We're doing the same.

I think Neely made a mistake. He's a RFA.

For some reason he was always under appreciated by most of us Bruins fans, but hes a great 3rd liner who can chip in 15 goals. Good acquisition by Tampa.

Sweet! Very happy about this deal. Pouliot was on my wish list (see here).

TSN does not have listed amongst their UFA's. He's more likely an RFA which is good - he made $1.1 last year.

Seems like CC, Killorn, and the rest of the AHLers will be staying there for another year unless they kill it at camp.

I think this has been the plan all along.

we gave up nothing and got an NHL body that can play 3rd line minutes and put up some points

I'm going to Miss Pouliot on the B's. He was a decent third liner if you can get him to have some chemistry with his linemates and hell put up a highlight goal or two.

B's Weren't going to resign him anyways, so good luck to you guys with him.

Maybe Stamkos can teach em a thing or two. haha

^ he definitely has his moments

I liked him in Boston, but I think the bruins are content with getting something for him. You guys will like him but will get frustrated at times with his dumb penalties and his inability to stay off his but. Seriously, watch out for how much he falls, it will get funny. But he words pretty hard and does have some scoring ability.

The bruins didn't give up on him, he was just poised to make a lot more than they felt he was worth through arbitration and we have some cheaper options coming up not to mention Caron who showed a lot of promise down the stretch last season

I actually really like Pouliot, he showed a lot of improvement under Julien. Just don't expect anything more than ~30 points. His "dumb" penalties are greatly exaggerated by butt hurt b's fans that like to blame the caps series loss on him (even though he was one of the only players that played up to his current ability)

He hustled, he hit, he was relentless on the puck and has a surprisingly long reach that broke up a good amount of plays. So long as you are patient with his so-so hockey sense and lack luster skating ability (although he is pretty fast) he'll be a good addition to your team.

Anyone that runs over Caps goalies and scores at the same time is good in my book.

I remember when I was a kid and I used to watch another player that kept falling on his butt....and it was funny, I'll admit it. That player?...former Leaf, Flame AND current Hall of Famer - Lanny McDonald.

So any player that always falls on their butts can't be all bad.
