Bruins acquire Martin St. Pierre
Bruins today traded Pascal Pelletier to Chicago for Martin St. Pierre. The 24 year old had 21 goals and 67 assists for Rockford of the AHL last season.
I like this move. Pelletier would never have made the team, even though he played well scoring 37 goals and 38 assists. St. Pierre is a year younger and has better playmaking ability, which the Bruins like. Playmakers usually transition better then goal scorers for some reason from the AHL.
Glen Murray also passed waivers, so he will be bought out tomorrow.
