After signing a one-year deal with Boston last off-season, Pouliot impressed in his first season in the Black and Gold.
Although Pouliot hasn't lived up to the hype in his career, he has proven himself as a productive third-line winger on the Bruins and could provide some scoring next season.
Don't expect Pouliot to get a long-term deal, but the Bruins could certainly use the former Montreal Canadian back next season.
Rask is a restricted free agent, meaning the Bruins can match any offer by another team or get compensatory draft picks in return.
Rask figures to be the goaltender of the future for the Bruins and should be rewarded with a long-term deal this off-season.
With an aging Tim Thomas, it is vital for the Bruins not to let Tuukka walk out the door.
Kelly was a key contributor to the 2012 Cup run for the Bruins and would serve as a quality third-liner next season for Boston.
The Bruins acquired Kelly from Ottawa last season at the trade deadline and Kelly fit in immediately. Kelly is also a great presence in the locker room and would be sorely missed by the Bruins.
Claude Julien loves the fourth-liners.
That's why I envision Paille staying with this club for at least another season. Paille brings a lot to the table on the fourth line.
He is tough, physical and can score the occasional goal. He plays hard and doesn't try to be fancy. With contributions to the penalty kill, Paille could prove to be a great commodity in 2012-2013.
