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.
Got the impression when Stauffer was talking about it, that fistric's inability to play his off-side was a bit of a suprise.
Not really a huge deal though. Whitney has a high chance to be moved by the deadline(more name value than Potter), so Fistric probably be in a regular spot soon enough.
