And you have complete confidence that the Oilers were able to get the proper read on a defenceman based on - not even the quality of play - but the mere concious decision of giving Petry more ice time for less than a month's worth of hockey?

For all the arguing about Gilbert VS Schultz, I would say the critical comparison is between Petry and Gilbert considering he is the one expected to take over Gilbert's roll. Using allotted ice time over a 3 week span as the primary point is pretty weak.

It seems, shall we say, arbitrary.
