I don’t really. Benoit Pouliot never remotely lived up to expectations in Montreal. Well actually his first year chez les Habs – 2009-2010 – was his best for us, with the left winger notching 15 goals and 9 assists in 39 games after coming here from Minnesota in the Guillaume Latendresse deal.
But last year, he was a bust – 13 goals and 17 assists in 79 games. And he doesn’t look much better this year in Boston, where he so far has seven goals and three assists in 29 games.
Anyhow, I bring this up cos my pal Kristian Gravenor was telling me – on Facebook, of course – that Pouliot is a beast. I begged to differ. Then he pointed me in the direction of this video. Check out this astonishing goal Pouliot scored just before Christmas.
Maybe the guy is a beast!
