Poti's turned in spotty performances at best and on most evenings, is nothing but a defensive liability. I'm not going to base my decision on someone's reputation, I'm going by actual game play. From that perspective, Bouchard is my choice, hands down.

If the offer is right, I'll trade Poti with or without Bouchard.
Right on. Who cares how Bouch got here? The fact of the matter is that during his timewith the team, Bouch has been one of the more effective defensemen. He has outplayed and outperformed Poti at every opportunity.
