The only way that Poti goes is if the Caps need to clear a decent amount of cap room to bring in a stud defenseman, which I don't see happening.

its gonna be something like anton babchuk, bryan mccabe, and eric brewer...

so slim pickings.


This trade deadline wont be about major pieces. It will be about depth players.

You're kind of an a-hole. Do you know that?

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.
