Anyone notice a change in Pothier?

In the last little while I've seen him be a lot more physical and more of an offensive presence on the ice. I don't know what happened, but he is starting to look like 2003 AHL Brian Pothier.

I completely agree, he is starting to play like the player I thought he'd be.

He had another pretty good game tonight...he is playing very physical now. I think perhaps the addition of Simpson might've helped in some weird way. He's been getting a lot of PP time along with Chara on the 2nd unit..very interesting. He's definately showing us he's capable of being a top 4 d-man.

I think being paired with Redden is really helping him along. He got 17:11 in icetime tonight (4th on D). He also picked up an assist too.

What I especially like about him is his puck movement and sticking with keeping things simple. Too many other players like to make the flashy play, but he just sticks with what works. He just goes about his business and makes the safe, high percentage play. Good for him.

It helps that he was playing an AHL team.

'In the last little while' meaning more than one game. Thanks for the input.

I had high hopes for him at the begining of the season, and a good week might be a start but until now he has had a hard time keeping one of the 5/6 spots. With rumours of another top four d-man being obtained, he had better up his game.

The way Pothier is playing made it easy for Mucks to move Hnidy.I didn't like Pothier at first but he has pick it up.Although I hope he rushes the puck more
