The Bruins, unlike many other teams, didn't undergo significant roster changes during the offseason. But they did lose players like Michael Ryder and Mark Recchi, so they signed defenseman Joe Corvo and left wing Benoit Pouliot to combat those departures.
Last year with the Hurricanes, Corvo played in all 82 games, recording 40 points (11 goals, 29 assists) and a minus-14 rating. So far this year, the 34-year-old has recorded two assist and a minus-1 rating through four games.
Pouliot, a free-agent signing from the rival Canadiens, recorded 30 points (13 goals, 17 assists) through 79 games in 2010-11. The 25-year-old, who was drafted fourth overall by the Minnesota Wild in 2005, has zero points through three contests this season with a plus-1 rating.
It's still early in the season, but based on how the two players fared last year, which one will impact the Bruins more this season?
