As for Poti, as much as we Ranger fan are aware of his flaws, what prevents a team like ATL, which needs a puck-moving d-man, that has a low payroll, and would only be obligated to Poti for one year from taking a chance on him? If there's lockout, they don't have to pay him if that's a concern. If there's a shortened season, he's not getting the full amount of his salary. I don't think it is out of the question for such a deal to take place.
