I feel strongly that the Caps are not going to retain all the UFAs that everyone wants them to unless they find out for a fact that Poti is done before July 1 and I don't see that happening.
Actually, I wouldn't bother discussing it with you at all. To me it implies closed-mindedness and that any points I raised in disagreement of that opinion would be ignored since your mind is already made up. I feel no need to essentially be talking to a wall.

I'd be much more likely to engage in a discussion that began with "I don't think the Caps will win in Ottawa because X, Y, and Z" since that implies some thought has been given to the situation.

Edit to add: Your second paragraph is a perfect example of what I am referring to. I agree that most of the moves that are being discussed are contingent on Poti's long-term prognosis.
