Although a long term gamble would have been alright with me, i'd imagine Petry's camp wasn't of the same mind. The money is excellent as is the term. Petry didn't have enough experience to really leverage more out of negotiations. After two years the Oilers should know what they got, and combined with the fact he's an RFA, they should be able to get him signed to a fair deal longterm.
