And I suspect that Purinton has much more value than most people realize here. The Ranger organization just gave him a 2 year deal and has never been willing to expose him to waivers--suggesting that he has some value around the league. If nothing else he's made the most of his abilities and gone farther than anyone ever imagined with whatever talent he has. Maybe Poti should think about that the next time he complains about having to take care of the defensive side of his position!
I'm not debating that Poti sucks, and that he's been a dissapointment. To put it simply - Purinto just sucks more
