Jas, I understand your point, but here's the problem. Poti spent a good amount of time setting up the other team for goals. More than his own team actuall. You keep bringing up Atlanta, and while, yes, they DO need a puck mover, the problem is that Hartley is a strict defensive systems guy. His defensemen may move the puck, but they are also very diligent in their own zone. Hartley is not one who would be willing to trade for him. He runs people like Poti out of town, not embraces him. And forget ANY team in the league giving up a first round pick for him. That's a pipe dream. Believe me, I wish it wasn't.
