Why ESPN is the Worldwide Leader in Bad Hockey Coverage

Scott Burnside really should market whatever he's smoking for this...

The Capitals quietly have built a tough, talented blue-line corps with last season's emergence of free-agent acquisition Brian Pothier. The Caps added to that mix Sunday by inking Tom Poti to a four-year deal worth $14 million.
That the Caps have upgraded their skill (Poti is pretty much the replacement for the departed Jamie Heward) is not in doubt. But "tough?" Poti and Pothier, "The Po-Po Boys?"* (the new pair pictured below).

I don't suspect there is a forward in the National Hockey League spending sleepless nights at the prospect of either of those two guys manning the crease in front of Olaf Kolzig.

* that's a New Orleans thing

The Heward/Poti comparison is, with all due respect, just plain silly. A classic journeyman vs a guy just built for the new NHL; and next time you go into a corner with Jurcina or Morrison, just pretend it doesn't hurt
