But these are roles Petry/Gilbert looked comfortable in during their first full seasons.

I just don't buy the "untouchable" hype about him. He's definitely a useful piece for the future - top-10 PP defenseman in the league and likely a top-4 defenseman in his prime - but to me he's not more impressive than Petry or Gilbert as prospects.
Having the worst coaching staff in the league by a lot doesn't help any of these young guys.
