I understood the reasoning, just not the timing. Poti was easily our best LD at the time, and was coming off of a very good series against Montreal. He was looking like a legitimate shutdown LD, and had chemistry with our up and coming RD stud Carlson. Alzner had yet to break out, and the Carlzner didn't exist at the NHL level yet. But getting the extension done a full season before his contract expired was peculiar, and obviously backfired afterwards.
