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.
Then I would ask you to provide a statistical analysis that counters mine, rather than brushing it off as arbitrary without some sort of foundation for doing so.
