When the season starts again the coaches are gooing to play Poti allot and if the lineup looks like I belive it will Poti is gooing to be the least of our problems... If you belive that Poti is as bad as you say, worse then Joel Bouchard, that he hasnīt suffered from playing for the NYR the last couple of years ect. I stand by what I said earlier. With all due respect, you donīt have a clue what you are talking about!
People can disagree with you and still have a clue. That is an idea you should understand.
He has suffered playing for the Rangers? He had his best season here (exception to the rule that it was). He then followed it up with half as much offense. He had 14 points. There are defensemen on the Rangers who did not play the minutes that Poti did, without any PP time who came very close to that number of assists. Yet, somehow Poti is a top offensive defenseman. The fact that he has averaged 31 points a season for his career. Yet you still see him as this offensive dynamo who has suffered in New York. The fact is, he has been more or less the same player in New York that he was in Edmonton. And that is an underachieving, defensive disaster.
