I would not lose sleep if we traded poti but not just for the sake of change!
I'm not saying that Poti should be traded for the sake of change. What I am saying is there are two players who are very similar in Bouchard and Poti. One (Bouchard) is better defensively and one (Poti) is better offensively. Bouchard's offense is close to Poti than Poti's defense is to Bouchard's defense. And Poti has more trade value. I am not advocating a trade to change things up. What I am suggesting is maybe Poti is an asset that Slats can use to upgrade another position. If he can get a good defensive defenseman (and I'll keep using Denis Gauthier) for Poti how could you not make that move. You upgrade the defense while giving up a player you can readily replace.
