Bieksa is a whipping boy because he makes bone-headed decisions sometimes. He's still a no 3-4 defenseman. Just play him with a defensive minded defenseman and he can have real success. Play him with Andrew farking Alberts and he'll look terrible.
I can see Wash moving Poti because (and I haven't watched a hell of a lot of Washington games but I have followed Poti's career since he was with Edmonton) he hasn't had a lot of playoff success. He's not great defensively and he's slowing down offensively.
If Green, Shultz, Alzner and Carlson play as well as they can, then I see Poti becoming expendable and being moved to fill another hole. Maybe a cheaper 5-6 defenseman + a pick.
Who knows? We can't predict the future but it's a possibility if you try thinking about it for a second.
