The closer example would be Potter as they both developed in the A, and are offensive minded. But he hasn't shown anything at the NHL level thus far to prove he's anything more than a mid ranged AHL defencemen.

Potter didn't prove anything more than Chorney...

Prior to this year, Potter was a 27 year old career AHLer. Chorney had more games played in the NHL and more points. Your own example shows we shouldn't be too quick to give up on Chorney

For offensive minded players, Potter is showing more in a smaller sample. You're right that Chorney has played more in the NHL, but on the worst team in the league two years in a row. Potter on the other hand played on New York and the Penguins. Much harder to break the line up, don't you think? Not to mention Potter is holding his own in his own end. As shown by a career -30 for Chorney and a +1 for Potter. Sure he's 27, but that's only 3 years older than Chorney. Give Chorney those 3 years in the AHL and let's see what happens.

More points?

Chorney

58 GP - 1 G, 6 A, 7 pts. .12PPG%

Potter

21 GP - 3 g, 7 a, 10 pts. .47PPG%

What?

Your own examples don't make sense and don't follow facts.

You might be right and you could easily be wrong as well.

I bet the same thing was said about this Corey Potter too when he spent 4 full seasons in college. Then most of a season in the ECHL, followed by another 4 full seasons in the AHL. But he is looking pretty good right now.


Edit - Oops I see someone already brought up the Potter example. I would bet if you looked around the league you could find a number of other similar examples though. Just thinking really quickly here I bet you could throw a guy like Rob Scuderi on the list.

It's pretty relevant to the idea that Chorney may still improve in a few years.

Potter->Not good until this year (27 yo)
Chorney->Maybe also not good until 27yo?

1) I'm glad we got Chorney back because I still think he can be an nhl'er
2) Does he have to clear waivers to come back up?

My initial argument was stating that he is an AHL defenceman now. Which he is. I also pointed out we can wait a few years and see what happens in a prior post.

only proves he's not NHL calibre, as other teams wouldn't be able to assign him to AHL without putting him back on waivers. if another team did claim him and placed him on waivers for the purpose of reassignment, St. Louis would probably reclaim and assign him to AHL before we could.

I did not see your following posts before I commented. But if you read this initial post it certainly does not sound like you were leaving the window open at all that he may be an NHL D man one day. Seems like you were saying all that is he will ever be, but maybe you were talking about this season only and it was not worded that well?

Also I would say having watched him down there in the AHL. He is more than serviceable he is top 3 type D at that level at this point IMO.

Not surprised that the Oilers picked him back up. As I said, they have a limited number of quality dmen in the organization and for depth purposes they can use Chorney in the AHL. He'll be one of the first in line when more injuries/suspensions hit again.

Chorney will be UFA 2012

We should be happy we just got a good ahl dman who is also a good person. If he does not play 80 nhl games this season he will be UFA in the summer. So probably we will loose him. He can help Barons now that is great.

Only way he can be in this organization is that if we got injury plug again he got call to Oilers and play well and at least 22 games.

Oilers claim Chorney

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=380121

Assigned to Oklahoma apparently along with Teubert. We're carrying 6 dmen now correct me if I'm wrong.

Ah, definitely an embellishment considering where he is now, but no I meant my initial "argument" with "thenuge" poster. My inital "post" is certainly an embellishment, but it's towards how I felt as of now.

Even though, I don't feel Chorney has what we need or what it takes in the NHL. He's played games in the NHL for two separate teams and has been sent down for a reason. It's true that Potter had done the same at the same age, but we can look at the teams and the point is made.

Chorney - The Oilers.. no explanation needed. The Blues in which they just needed a coaching change this season.

Potter - The Rangers and the Penguins.

my interpretation is that Chorney can be assigned to the AHL as he has not played 10 NHL games since he was claimed by St. Louis.
I think the 10 games/30 days would be reset from when the blues put him on waivers.

Whats with the infatuation over contracts? It's not the off season, its not like we are going to be signing players. We have what 49 now? so we have 1 left in case we need to make a trade at the deadline, hell if we really need to make more trades we could always just include Chorney in it to rid ourselves of the contract.

Its not a big deal and if you think the player will be an asset to your team then why not claim him. contracts are apparently over rated during the season.

I think Barker will come out for Sutton against Detroit.

There will probably be a rotation of Sutton, Barker, Petry and Peckham rotating until Whitney returns and Petry is returned to OKC.

So I guess it's not as common a myth as was thought?

Sorry, just poking fun after all the posts saying I was wrong.

Barker is flying back to Edmonton to have his injured ankle looked at. He injured his ankle against the Big Bad Bruins last night.
