I was going to post that.

It seems like only this year though, he's really started handling the puck like a grenade.

Petry has regressed quite a bit this year. Last year he looked like he was molding into a player that could be a good #2 on any team. If you would have asked this at the end of last year, the most common answer would have been "Lucky to get him for around 4.5". But this year, he's playing like he's worth maybe 3 mill a year. He needs to just settle down and stop trying to be so cute with the puck and maybe start dishing out those open ice stand up's at the blue line he was doing so well last year.
