“He had two years off. He knows how to play the game,” Oates said. “And he’s had another week of skating at this speed, NHL speed, to see the game and also see our system, which I think is growing within the team. We talk about it out there, what I see that he needs to do to fit into the system.”
“I definitely need to get in a game,” Poti said. “You don’t want to sit out too long and get stale. Like I said, it’s hard to have your game legs when you’re not playing. For me I think it’s important for me to get out there and get adjusted to the pace of the game and things like that. But we’re all professionals and if I get the call I’ll be ready and go out and do my best.”
