Last night's game is just another example of how HF is right and Kruger should be sitting Potter for Fistric every game. If they need to break up Schultz squared so everyone is on a comfortable side, then do it. But no more Potter. Waive him already.
I see no need to waive Potter. Injuries are going to happen, the seventh defenseman will play games.
I see it as Whitney > Potter, and I haven't seen enough of Fistric to tell. A two game sample size is not enough - I'm surprised that so many HF posters here are apparently such excellent judges of talent to be able to tell in the 15 minutes of game time that Fistric is such a superior player.
Whitney skating issues is a big problem. His superior passing helps but he's in trouble.
With #5 Whitney, #6 Fistric and #7 Pottery....why waive Potter? Just keep him as your #7 - the Oilers will need him. He's probably better than Peckham.
