Giroux is worthless except to the Bears, it'd kinda screw them to trade him to the Baby Sens though so there's no reason to do that either.

These were the quotes, I presume.

The second one is hilarious, seeing as Vermette and Volchenkov are magnificent penalty killers.

What's even more hilarious is to see these people changing their mind when they see that the poll is like 75-3

I'm surprised there was a debate, Blockchenkov by far.

Poti is a good player, no doubt...

I'd say there is a valid argument when they are both standing on two skates... but one frickin' leg? Come on now!

I think this was about as much a waste of time as you see on HF. Volchenkov is a highly thought of player on a bad team that most people still dont understand why they are not really good. Poti is a career whipping boy who most people can't understand why anyone would want him.

Fact is that most none Capitals fans don't watch the Caps. Even with Ovechkin. Poti has been a stud for the Caps. Since its happened in relative obscurity, those that thought he sucked in MSG and Edmonton would have no reason to believe he is valuable.
Its kind of like saying Viktor Kozlov is a primary piece of Washington's success. You have to really see it to believe it and even then most would still not believe it.

Most of them are still waiting for the Caps to come down to earth.
