Well I hope these other teams are more interested then the Habs

Oh wow...what a bombshell. Good thing you're the first person to report this rumor.

Whitesnake 07-06-2006 12:40 PM

You know like the nightmare that keeps repeating itself over and over.....

GoHabsGO252006 07-06-2006 12:40 PM

If it's true I hope he doesn't get more than Bouillon

Fido22 07-06-2006 12:41 PM

what's the link to Code's website? He was pretty decent at the trade deadline.

I know that this rumor has been going on for a while but i'm just posting a new "source" if you wanna call it that.

At least this time other teams are interested. It scares me a little less thinking he might go elsewhere.

This signing would be stupid, what use he would have ????


We already got 7 d

Traitor8 07-06-2006 12:48 PM

well I don't have any sources but I think if we were to sign a defenseman, it would be to trade another defenseman to get a forward or a center back ...

Most NYR fans have been telling me that.....

- His offensive ability is declining (only 3 goals last year)
- He suffers brain cramps (many turnovers)
- His defensive game hasn't improved much over the years.


Then again, I wouldn't mind him if he signs a 1-2 year deal for around Bouillon type money. He can be agood power play QB which we were missing last year. WE had Markov and Souray then something like Dandenault/Bouillon and RIvet.

I'd even guess that if we couln't sign the big 2nd line center or top 6 winger that we wanted via free agency (plan A), this would be prety much the way to go to get those assets (plan B)....especially considering that 3 of our top 4 d-man are set for UFA status next year.

To even think about Poti without considering a guy like Danny Markov is plain dumb and stupid. Seriously, if he does that one, I'll totally reconsider my faith in him. For those who wouldn't go as far, I give you 10 games in the season for you to say the same thing.....

I would even take Jesse Bélanger before I'll take Poti and I mean I would play him on defense.....:D

I don't think we need another defensive defencemen like Markov. HE might have some good chemistry with our MArkov though (didn't they play together during the Olympics)

Problem with D Markov is he's extremely injury prone.

He will. :teach:

poti is god awful. he was ran out of edmonton...then the rangers and now he's coming here? oh man, the media is going to eat him and spit him out.

Drunk World Order 07-06-2006 01:06 PM

He has had solid stats throughout the year...I have seen some ranger games...and he has looked good to me...my friend whom is a Rangers fan gave me this feedback: Poti has his days...and had a bit of a tough time adapting to the new NHL...in which a lot of dmen did around the league...he also stats that at the later part of the season he was very solid...

Last seasons stats...

(pretty solid career stats if you ask me)

I think he could be a good addition...plus he's only 29

Montrealer 07-06-2006 01:09 PM

Reminds me a bit of Brisebois... a guy who could be a decent d-man but too many brain cramps causing intense hatred from fans.
