That's absolutely not true at all.

"And what is wrong with Rachunek, Poti and Ortmeyer? Just because you think they have no trade value, does not mean they don't."

Poti does not have much of a market. Not many teams look at a player who is petrified of his own shadow, does not know when to use a wrister or a slapshot, does not know when to shoot or pass, and is arguably the worst defensive player in the NHL. And makes over $3m per year. And thinks that players who are "offensive" players should not be held accountable for playing poor defensively.
Ortmeyer? Come on now. Yes, the kid played hard. But unless he develops more of a scoring touch, he is a 4th liner on any other team. How much trade value do you think 4th liners have?
RAchunek? Until he proves anything, his value is fairly low.
