So Potter plays and Fistric sits.
It's odd then that Whitney playing with Fistric looked so much better than Whitney with Potter if Whitney doesn't feel comfortable on the other side.
Also if Potter is only in to keep Whitney happy, why is he seeing PK time, especially late in games?
The organization can spin this how they like, but Krueger obviously likes Potter more than Fistric.
Edit: My thought is that Potter looks better in practice because Fistric's strengths of rubbing guys out and clearing the crease aren't as evident.
