No, we really don't want Poti. That's about as polar opposite as I can think of for what we should be trading for.

That is extremely bad business as well. Poti just signed an extension. Trading him this soon is the wrong thing to do.

This is what we did with Hossa...and Chara didn't like it.

Kugrysheve has said, repeatedly, that he wants to play in North America. He came back to NA very early this summer to train here, instead of Russia. There's honestly less flight risk with him than with many North American prospects who struggle to crack the NHL roster for a year or two (Chris Bourque, Geoff Platt, etc.)

Agreed. As much as Poti appears to be the underachiever on the defense right now (hopefully he'll continue to get healthier and improve his play), we can't turn around and trade him right away. It's not going to make it any easier to resign other players, especially at any sort of hometown discount.
