Corey Potter
 
Edmonton Oilers ‏@EdmontonOilers 3m
#Oilers place defenceman Corey Potter on waivers.

EpSoNiight 03-04-2014 11:07 AM

Great for the oil, but now he might take up a spot in OKC

Jimmi McJenkins 03-04-2014 11:08 AM

And no one is sad. Please let him get claimed

RaabHart 03-04-2014 11:10 AM

Something has to be up, how many d men do we have up here now? Ference, Schultz, Petry, Marincin, N.Schultz, Fraser and Belov's out? I think we have a RHD incoming just my prediction.

McGhostbuster 03-04-2014 11:12 AM

Cue MacT gif.

Really though. We're looking skimpy on the backend. Something incoming?

McDNicks17 03-04-2014 11:12 AM

Lest we forget the Corey Power Potter Play.

Could be nothing as well. Could be the Oilers trying to get rid of some d-men as they have a lot.

hope he gets picked up

Maybe but no need to waive him right now IMO, especially after we waived Larsen yesterday. I think that theres something to the Myers rumors out of Buffalo...

They waited until Larsen cleared waivers to waive Potter.

Seems like they're trying to lose at least one D.

I agree. Trying to lose a contract. "What, nobody took Larsen? Let's try Potter today".

gqmixmaster 03-04-2014 11:37 AM

the oilers should waive nick schultz, i bet he gets taken.

with larsen and potter goin to the A, fedun can always jump up

Aerchon 03-04-2014 11:39 AM

Ill be the lone person who doesn't like this.

He has not been as good this year as previous years but I would still point to Potter being superior to Fraser, Larson, Fedun, or any other #6 guy we have played to date.

Sure I would prefer someone better but I do not see anyone better in our system as a #6 RD.

Mcnofool6110 03-04-2014 11:45 AM

Sad days. We lose another 44.

Digger12 03-04-2014 11:48 AM

IMO the only reason Potter was ever brought here in the first place was because he was a Tom Renney pet project from his Rangers days. With Renney long since gone, it was only a matter of time before his number was up.

Still, best of luck to him. Hopefully he'll be able to either get claimed or catch on with another club in the summer.

dustrock 03-04-2014 11:52 AM

Assume they'll call up Fedun or Klefa after the deadline.

Oilerzfan 03-04-2014 11:58 AM

As sad as it is to even say it, this move makes us better. Should have been done last year.

belair 03-04-2014 12:02 PM

Good.

Now waive Fraser.

CornKicker 03-04-2014 12:11 PM

someones coming imo...

AlowlyMcOilersfan 03-04-2014 01:31 PM

waive everyone

:P

I thought the speculation was that Klefbom was going to finish the year here.

If N Schultz is here this time tomorrow I am going back to the Richard Simmons avatar

Paralyzer008 03-04-2014 07:15 PM

Hope no one picks him up

I've always wanted to keep him on as an injury call up, belongs in OKC

I was listening to stauffer and he's talking about it like it's practically already happened.

After the fallout of the deadline, Klef will probably get called up.

Up the Irons 03-04-2014 07:33 PM

Well when this team feels they nolonger need the services of cory potter things must be looking up.

Good riddance.
