But whatever. It doesn't really matter. On the other hand, what does matter is the trade proposal.
It's very simple. The Sharks should give up Mihalek + Ehroff + Cheechoo for Heatley.
OR, they could give up Mihalek + Ehroff + Versteeg/Sharp... Or maybe, if the Sens were amiable, Mihalek + Ehroff + Coutoure + 1st.... I dunno if that works for the Sens, but who knows.
In any event, I don't see why we're talking about Petricki.
Oh and, by the by, I would take Karlsson, Cowen or Weircioch over Petricki any day.. And I think most NHL scouts would too.
I think he is being a bit overrated by sharks fans (I live in Spokane and it is Cowen no contest, provided the knee holds up), but if you haven't heard ofPetrecki look into him. I think he has a reaonsable chance of being a meaner, but probably not as good defensively Robyn Reghr. Is a Steven's like player possible? I suppose, but Stevens was far smarter, and also had a great deal more offensive potential.
Also, I take Karlsson and Cowen over Petrecki easily, but not Weiorioch, who is a very, very good prospect. Very under the radar, and quite the steal in the second round.
