I mean, sure he put up an 81% Corsi tonight (with MacT potentially still in Columbus nonetheless) but I have serious doubts. Other than offensive skill, prove to me he's better defensively than either of those two.
Yes. Jack Johnson has flaws, but is still a top pair defenseman. Considering how Petry makes everyone play better (see Smid, Marincin, Belov), a Petry-Johnson pairing might actually be pretty good, albeit there would still likely be some bad moments in our own zone.
