I want Duby to start because I know he'll want to redeem himself.
Smid and Petry likely feel the same way.
But with no Horcoff and no MPS, that's a big part of our defensive forwards gone. I doubt Horcoff will be ready to go by Saturday, and Colorado we are more likely to beat, I say save Bulin for the Avs if Duby is ready to go tonight.
Honestly this team has two of the most offensively dominant players in the league, i dont see how Potter can play an entire game against them and not be minus at least a couple goals. Phoenix is a weak team offensively and they gave Potter nightmares out there, I cant imagine how he will do against a team that knows what they're doing
If Potter plays tonight I hope that his pairing gets scored on 4 times in a 5-4 Oilers win. Fistric should be playing over Whitney and Potter IMO. If we are so hell bent on playing Whitney on the left side then here's a ****ing idea for our head coach: Play Fistric with J. Schultz and play N. Schultz on the right side of Whitney. Problem solved, no more Potter.
Fistric played RD in Dallas a lot and when Tambellini did his press conference after the trade he said a big reason we liked Fistric is because he can play both sides. I'm not buying it.
What a waste of a draft pick.
Worse yet is that he's an UFA at years end and he's a guy that IMO is a perfect 3rd pairing guy for us, so getting dicked around like this might make him want to get out of Edmonton before he gets a chance to establish himself.
