Would you make this trade with the Rangers

Well, I live here in Atlanta and I am a Thrashers fan, but I grew up in NY with the Rangers. I say the Poti deal wouldn't be so bad. We have a lot of young talent in our system and Poti is the kind of "vet" d-man we need. He has plenty of years left in him too. Plus, Atlanta always does well when NYR gives us a player- Savard, Petrovicky.
NYR are a complete mess right now, but they are moving in the right direction with the restructuring (although Sather needs to just fire himself) and concentration on youth. Waddell needs to make a move NOW and acquire some GOOD vets to play with ATL. I like Poti. I always have. For a #10 pick? I say he's worth it if we are to have any sort of a playoff run in the immediate future.
That, of course, includes spanking the Rangers everytime they set foot in Philips.
