It's not Petry's development that I'm concerned about. Playing in the AHL is fine at this stage in his career, especially considering he'll be the first callup if/when we need one. It's the fact that he's the 3rd or 4th best defenseman we have and we're willingly going without him when we already have one of the league's worst defenses to begin with.
