I agree. Why would the Isles trade a top 4 D, especially one who can work the PP, for a package. Pothier is small, soft and not skilled enough to compensate for his stature. If we want Aucoin, we're going to have to give something (not 4 unproven players) in return. Pothier isn't one of Ottawa's top 6. Shastlivy hasn't shown us anything yet and Hnidy, while better than Pothier IMO, isn't a top 4 either. I hate trade proposals that involve quantity for quality particularly when nobody in the quantity package is going to make any kind of an impact. You guys are a lot higher on Pothier than I am.
