In the rent-a-player scenario then the market for a guy like Aucoin goes up. Best offer wins in that situation - It's a sellers market for a guy like Aucoin imho.

Well that said, I can't dispute the point that many of you are making above. Ottawa has the best defense in the league. And, the fact that Pothier can manage to play close to 15 minutes a night on that team suggests that he has turned a corner in his career.
