Petry is an excellent D-man, that one play does not represent his season as a whole (he isn't very good on the power play, and it's why he's rarely put out on the ice in that situation). The guy played his first full season last year and fared very well. Sure, he's prone to getting beat one-on-one at times, as are a lot of good D-men (Victor Hedman and Ryan Suter for example), but he's generally very good in his own end. He can throw his body around, has an excellent pokecheck, and is a great skater. The one thing he needs to work on is gap control.
Offensively, he has the tools to succeed (hard shot, skating ability) but just can't seem to put it all together, due to a lack of O-zone hockey sense and a shot that is quite inaccurate.
He'll be a very solid 2nd pairing two-way D-man for years to come IMO.
