I am not talking about Branka like he is playing for HFD like Poti did for us.

Baranka should be a allstar in the AHL at the least. At the most there are 3-5 D's in the AHL who will make it to the NHL as top 4 D's. Thoose 3 D's are spread out on 27 teams.

Beeing solid for HFD isn't good enough. Beeing the best in HFD is not even be good enough. He have to become one of the top D's in that league to be good enough, probably top 3 of 162 defenders.

He got potential to be that. But it doesn't seem like he are pushing for it. Baranka to HFD is what Tyutin is to NY, Baranka for HFD must become what Scott Niedermayer is to Anaheim, thats cold facts.
