Agree to disagree. I will just make my pitch... Petry has offensive upside but his defense is terrible. Boychuk has a cup plays 25 minutes a night and my second team is Boston so i watch about 5 hours of Boston games a week. Boychuk is what he is... a RHD smid.

Our weakest hole is the RHD position which is also hampering JSchultz since he is the only one worth playing on that side.

Boychuk is a bust? Did you think he was Pronger 2.0 or Lidstrom 2.0? Also you are switching picks not giving the first. Boychuk is also, like Boyle, one of the best dressing room guys on the team and a complete professional.
Boychuk is what he is and what he is is sorely needed on the Oilers. Petry is in his spot right now so the move makes most sense.

BTw Boychuk is a local boy but for me that is just coincidence as i never care about that stuff.
