Poti and Hamrlik inspire fear in exactly no one.
Well I didn't see Kovalchuk "fear" Erskine. In another post I indicated I'm willing to give him a chance. But I'll repeat, okay. When the Caps start beating upper tier teams and Erskine beats the snot out of them too I'll be a happy camper. (Don't think I used happy camper before). That has not happened yet.

And given he's coming off a suspension he may not be as aggressive. It was hard to tell against a lifeless Panther team.

I just wouldn't mind seeing some better defense and outlet passes from that position. You know to help with the offense.
