I don't have much first-hand knowledge of Petrecki (he's only played one game for San Jose), but from what the sages over in Worcester say, he's made a lot more progress than you would think.

He came out of college and was totally run over by the AHL. Slowly he's gone from being a liability, to being mediocre, to being a good defensive dman with NHL potential. It took a while, but defensemen mature in unusual timeframes.

Based on the game he played, I don't see him being worse than most team's #6/7. I doubt he can get out of the bottom pairing, but hey. He's young and with NHL playtime it's hard to say where his ceiling is.
