Poti was traded against York (by Sather). Thats his biggest problem. It was a bad trade, Poti hasnīt turned out well IMO. He is a non physical defensemen and that is never popular in NY, but that isnīt his biggest problem on the ice in my book. Like several people has expressed earlier here there are several "non-physical" defensemens who has success. Lidström has been mentioned although I donīt really agrees with the non physical part because he(lidstrom) takes allot of hits to make plays, but anyway. My biggest probelm with him is that he is inconsistent, I doubt the players up front have a clue [=)] what Poti is gooing to do with the puck. He is far from perfect in his own end, but did actually play more physical(stickwork but anyway) late last season. What I donīt agree with is the "Poti is the worst player in the world" on this and that. People started booing and then the spin work started, "he canīt position himself". "He pokechecks and gets beaten wide all the time"(that happend what 3-4 times last year?).

Sorry, "donīt have a clue" should be changed to something like I strongly disagree... I am not that great at english and used a term I am familiar with.
