There's a lot of people falling in love with the idea of Myers and not the actual Myers.
No, they aren't.
The only thing they have in common is inconsistency with the difference being that when Myers is on, he's leaps and bounds better than Petry.
I know that you're a big Petry fan, but i honestly don't see what you and some others see in him. I see a player who now has more bad games than good, who has completely abandoned the physical game that he was starting to show the previous 2 seasons, can't get the puck out of his own zone and never hits the net with his shot.
Myers is a bit of a reclamation project and i'm not sure that i would part with somebody like Eberle or the 2014 1st rounder for him, but if the package if Gagner+Petry, i think it's a no brainer and a very worthwhile gamble to buy low.
I don't know why some of you are saying that Myers is terrible. Unfortunately, i've been watching a lot of Buffalo games this season for Oilers draft purposes and Myers has played well more often than not and certainly doesn't suck like some of you are saying.
