The Boston Bruins have signed former Canadiens winger Benoit Pouliot to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: A curious move by the Bruins, as Pouliot has been a bust with the Canadiens and with the Wild before that. This will likely be his last chance to prove he belongs in the NHL. At worst, it’s not an expensive, lengthy deal, and gives them more room for other signings.
