You'll have to forgive me lack of knowledge of advanced stats. But if a guy like Potter looks great using them, then I would say there are problems with those stats. He certainly fails the eye test badly.

I am just amazed how short the memory on HF is. Gilbert was bought out because Minnie was in a cap crunch and couldn't get rid of Heatley, not because he isn't an NHL level d-man. If they could have fit him in, he'd still be there.

I am shocked so many people would prefer Potter. I just couldn't disagree with that more.
