Value-wise, it's closer than Pens posters will admit but it still favors Despres. Petry just doesn't have the luxury of playing behind and with as many solid veterans like Despres has, which is why his game is far less consistent.

Despres is bigger, faster and better in his own end but his offensive contributions typically get overvalued.

Again, I wouldn't swap him for Petry...but calling him untouchable is pretty ridiculous considering the depth the Pens have in their system on the blue line.
