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.
Gagner and Petry will not get you close to Myers. Myers has more value and more potential than Petry but right now, there really isn't too big of a difference in the impact these two players are playing on their teams. Both lack the consistency due to playing in roles above their heads.

Petry is the only defenseman on this team to show any success in carrying his own pairing while everyone else on this team can only compliment one. Replacing Petry with Myers and making him take the #1 defensive position on this does nothing to net any positive results.
