That isn't my argument. I didn't need to make one. I was asking you why you assumed Petry was a better D.

Gilbert is a better PMD than Petry, a better offensive D than Petry, and as I alreadly stated in the thread put up numbers here that are damned good when one considers how bad the teams were that he was playing for.

Petry has basically been exposed this season, really a year he'd like to forget, and doesn't offer up any more hits than Gilbert currently and isn't playing a physical game.

Plus as I mentioned Gilbert was good enough to put up a 45pt season, something Petry could only dream of.

But all that said why do you believe Petry is better?
