That was Poti's best NHL season. Unfortunately, his time with the Rangers was downhill from there.

Poti was a victim of the time he played for us. He was traded for a popular player (York) who was everything Poti wasn't, at least in Ranger fans eyes. He (somewhat unfairly) became the poster child for the kind of meek, uninspired play that characterized those early 2000s Ranger teams.

Those teams, and players like Poti, couldn't be more polar opposite of the current Rangers. You almost wish they could play against each other to illustrate that point.
