On what basis is Petry a better D than Gilbert. This was the mistaken imo cast around last year but which time has revealed as a huge distortion. Nobody should feel bad though, the Org believed the same thing on very limited information and returns.
A year later we can't even find a D in the lineup to shelter petry from his numerous mistakes.
Not the least of which is the worst play I've seen by a D probably since Colin Campbell(former Oiler D and hopeless in the capacity) Happened in the last Chicago game, everybody knows which one, The whole league got a laugh. I'd still like to see Petry explain what he was doing on that play.
