I'm trying to understand why you aren't high on Petrovic really? I think Petrovic has a ton of value because he's a right-handed shot (rare for top 4 caliber d-men), has size & willingness to use it (which we need more of), is not a bad skater and can provide some offense too. And to me, he's a lot closer to being a contributor than some guys so to me, thats more valuable than other prospects.
Im not low on petro but i do think one of our prospects would have to go back to vancouver if we end up trading with them. We already have tons of depth on the blue line and drafting matheson this summer only adds to that fact. I haven't seen enough of petrovic to really judge his quality compared to our other prospects.
