Obviously a strong performance by the Caps in the playoffs will overshadow player's shortcomings generally speaking. However, when looking across the blue line, Jeff Schultz is considered by many on these boards as the weak sister, so imho he's the vulneralble one. Now of course a lot hinges upon Tom Poti and when and if he recovers from his ailment. But a Poti/Schultz comparison, well Poti wins it, he was the teams best defenseman last season during the PO's before the puck striking him in the face, he uses a long stick so his reach is as good if not better than Schultz and he's more physical/experience/savy with the puck than Schultz. Of course, if it's a no go on Poti's return next season than all bets are off.
