Its is debatable which one is better, because their stats are so close, but you must remember Potter was thrown to the wolfs last year and played against tougher opponents then Clitsome. Instead of being brought along slowly, like most rookies are, the Oilers were force to play Potter more due to injuries amongst their D . Clitsome and Potter both played about the same amount of PP time and unlike one poster said, Potter's points were evenly split between the PP and EV. Potter was not the answer last year and if he was brought along slowly, things might of been different, but no way is Clitsome an upgrade. Why would the Oilers make this trade when they could get a better D though waivers.

If Winnipeg had players like Petrell in their system, why didn't they use them, because their PK, 24th last season, sure could of used the help.
