Let's not forget that Purinton is only being paid 600K to stink. Poti and Malakhov were getting millions, and it's hard to imagine more underachieving defensemen than those two, especially Malakhov. So if it's even debatable who is worse, then Purinton is clearly more bang for the buck. And isn't that what the "new" Rangers are all about?

On a side note, hopefully Poti will redeem himself this season.
