I got this poster at a Roadrunners game in '95 against the Soviet Wings team. RIP Barry.
at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

I asked Rob Cowie about this incident as Cowie was good friends with Potomski. Potomski's nickname was Potsie and evidently, Potsie held teammates to a very high standard about what it meant to be a teammate and Kristich failed to live up to those standards. Cowie said that Khristich wasn't the world's best teammate by any stretch. Cowie talking about playing in Italy is a pretty good story as well.
Speaking of the Anaheim Bullfrogs....not only did they have Potomoski but also noted enforcer Darren Langdon on their roster at various times along with Darren Banks, who had a cup of coffee with the Boston Bruins once upon a time if memory serves.
