Potulny, like Syvret, is getting a chance somewhere else. And if he makes it as a regular, well then it's a condemnation that our coaching staff did not properly develop the player. But sometimes that's irrelevant and they just need to go somewhere else.
The Oilers, we know what kind of team they are. If they were a championship contender, Potulny would likely be in the minors. He has the hands, but he's not consistent enough to be a top 6 forward, and not sound enough as a complete player to be a bottom 6 defensive/energy guy. I'm not fretting that one yet. He was on waivers like Syvret was now, and who is to say another stint in the minors wouldn't help Syvret become a better player?
