Thought anything over 1.5 was too much, but at least its not a Colby Armstrong style signing.

Its probably about 300-500K too much but really its only one year and we have plenty of space. I dont see a problem with it.

And its really not that bad at all if he scores 15 goals and 30+ points which is very possible.

I feel he became a better player during his year in Boston, and was a little surprised the B's did not re sign him, I think it's a good deal for TB.

When you're overpaid by 300k or so who really cares?

Going to miss his awesome goals

Anyway good signing, he's a pretty hard worker, doesn't take many shifts off (in Boston at least)

Good signing. Its a 1 year deal so if they overpaid by a few 100k then its not really a big deal.

Pouliot has moments of brilliance, but also has some moments that make you think "wtf is he doing?" Not the smartest player on the ice, but he plays hard every shift and is a solid third-line player. He's also strong as an ox and seems like a good guy. I enjoyed his short stint with Boston and wish him the best at Tampa.
