I do hear you, TB...
tough imagining a decent defense with Poti, Rachunek and Pock out there. But I'm also thinking about points from the blueline. Poti didn't have a great season point-wise (10 goals, 14 assists for 24 points), but I think as the #1 offensive guy (read offensive, not the guy I would have going against top lines, but out there when Jagr & Co. are out there) and as a #1 point PP guy (his PP time hasn't been overwhelming since arriving here), I think he gets 50+ points. Does that make up for his defensive shortcomings? I don't know, but to be honest, Leetch was not any better defensively the last couple seasons - not so much a pansy, but he was beaten so easily and out of position so often that made him just as bad.
But like I said, for the right deal, I'd trade him (and the right deal does not mean a 32 year old who cannot be afforded by his current team).
