Volchenkov vs. Poti

After a bit of a debate between fans in a trade proposal, I ask if you had to pick one, who'd you take?

Anton Volchenkov or Tom Poti?

Diffrent players but this is not even remotely close. Volchenkov.

There was debate about this? I'm truly surprised. I don't mind Poti - and he gobbles minutes, but Volchenkov's a stud.

Volchenkov easily.

At this point they're about the same in terms of impact on games (even though have different specialties) but Volchenkov has way more of a future.

Yeah, in a washington/ottawa proposal there was a small debate... just curious to see what non-biased fans opinions were.

Mods, is there a reason I can't see poll results (as in who voted)?

Volchenkov, but it's close.

Poti really is an awesome defenseman. No matter how he played in the past, or what Rangers fans have to say about him, he's a rock.

He's probably been Ottawa's best d-man this year, along with Kuba.

Not saying much, but he's eclipsed Chris Phillips defensively of late.

Yeah, Poti is better than he gets credit for, no doubt about it. I doubt there's a GM in the league who picks him over Volchenkov, though.

Exactly.

I'm not sure who said Poti was better than Volchenkov...maybe there was just an understanding or something.

There was a Caps/Sens proposal and a few Caps fans said Poti was better than Volchenkov. I just wanted to see what other Caps fans and other non-biased fans thought.

It's in this thread.

I'm thinking, nobody actually said that, it's probably some statement that people are taking out of context. Then I go on the thread and I see not 1, not 2 but at least 3 different Caps fans say that Poti is far better than Volchenkov and that Poti on 1 leg is better than Volchenkov!

I will say that I figured Tom Poti was done after his stint with the Rangers but he has rebounded nicely in recent years however the answer is Anton Volchenkov, seven days a week.

Yeah, it's embarrassing.

As others have said, Poti probably deserves more credit than he gets, but the answer here is Volchenkov.
