non - Ranger fans

Poti is a sore subject (for me as a Ranger fan). First off, Mike York was an extremely popular player with the Rangers. One of the few players on the Rangers that the fans appreciated and applauded. From what I understand, Sather acquired Poti to prevent the Islanders from acquiring him (or at least that is one of the reasons). The fact that the popular Mike York was involved in the Poti deal already makes him a marked man (for lack of better words).

My question is, how do other fans view Poti? We tend to overrate our players for a trade but are the most critical when we watch them game in and out. Poti is atrocious defensively.

That being said, we'll take Joe Thorton for Poti and Petr Nedved! : )

Honestly, an early draft pick would make me happy. In this case, addition by subtraction for the Rangers.

Leetch
deVries
Kasparaitis
Tytun
Purinton
Possibly Bryce Lampman could make the squad next year.
Didn't Lawrence Nycholat almost make the squad this year.

Those can be your top 7 for next year. (Mironov and Malakhov, who have been our best pair, should not be back).
