So are we relying on him to be a good puck mover 5v5? We have Whitney, Petry, and Schultz to do that job.

If we wanted to have a soft RH guy we should have kept Gilbert, who when compared to Potter looks like Shea Weber.

Fistric brings an element that the Oilers don't have, has much more experience in the NHL, has more promise, and is younger.

Hopefully Potter is awful and Ralph sees it pretty quickly.
I totally agree Potter adds nothing to the roster that others dont already do much better. Fistric is the only guy back there who can do what he does as well as he does. People who are saying Fistric is only a #6/7 guy will be proven wrong soon enough.
