Whitney's passing is good typicaly. And most definatly better than Potter's. But positioning, skating, and physical play are the things desperatly needed for a D-man. Whitney has been **** in those areas.
The funniest thing is pointing to Whitney's points as something note worthy. Potter doesn't get any PP time, which is where whitney has gotten all his second assist points. It's even funnier because Whitney has had a hell of a time trying to keep the puck in the zone while he is out there, cause the guy can't move anything below the knee.
And when I say Potter has played solid. I mean he has played solid for a #6 D-man who makes practicaly nothing. Compared to Whitney who at the moment does't look good enough to be in the NHL.
And Whitney not Potter was the one who put the puck on the sharks tape last night.
You're right, there is no point in us continuing this. We're obviously seeing very different things. I see Whitney as struggling but still contributing. I see Potter as not being NHL level and a train wreck out there.
That being said, Whitney did have his worst game of the year last night. It was almost Potter level of bad.
