It's been quite the transaction-heavy few days for Potter. First, he was cut from his PTO by the Coyotes. Next, he was signed to a one-year, two-way contract. Finally, there's this waiver situation. It may all be "red tape," yet it's remarkable how fringe players such as Potter get tossed around. Oct 3 - 2:28 PM

He has eight goals and 32 points with a minus 11 rating in 125 career games.

Corey Potter and Emile Poirier will be scratched against the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night.

Over his first five NHL games, Poirier has produced a point, a block and six hits. Which is more than what can be said for Potter during his two games of action this season. Neither has much of any fantasy value.
