They don't need someone that's going to be a liability in the defensive end. If the B's look at anyone, they should look at Gonchar.


And I wouldn't give either of those packages (1st and prospect; or Rolston) for Poti.
poti has improved a great deal in his own zone this year and is still a pretty good offensive-defenseman at the age of 26. if boston wants poti they would have to pony up because...

leetch-35
malakhov-35
mironov-31
bouchard-30

and besides leetch all those guys are unsigned. i think the he means a little more to the rangers then what the bruins are willing to give up.

btw, gonchar isnt great in his own zone either.
