This is such a steal. No we've just gotta hope he'll sign long term for a discount after this is up

Agreed I was expecting 2 years 6m for Petry 1.75m is excellent. Not sure why Tamby likes to overpay or goaltenders though...

Hopefully Dubnyk keeps his agent away from Petry

I've got some Leafs fan telling me that Petry will never be anything more than a #4 defenceman. Good stuff.

So they would rather reward Dubnyk for his inconsistency than Petry for his ability to step in and immediately be our best puck moving d-man? Sense.

Which I'd be just fine with. A solid #3-4 is exactly what I'd be happy with.

Quite the typical HF forum overreaction though considering that Leafs fans have been touting the virtues and abilities of Luke Schenn for four years. Now that he's gone - "Oh, he's a bum."

Well, they're experts on defensemen.

I think they know a thing or two about great defense.

Am I missing something why Avs fans are hating on Petry on the main board?

By their logic he is a #4 because of the contract he got. Maybe Tambo could have given him more and he would then be a lock for the top pairing.

For the past year or so, the Avs fans have been hating A LOT. I do not know what happened, but they've been edgy against us for some reason. This was mentioned a month ago as well. So it's not just me who noticed it. lol.

It's quite humorous to still see them claiming that their defence is soooooo superior to Edmonton's.

He might be a #3, but that isn't really an off the wall statement.

And even if true, it's still a good contract. Leaf fans, lol.

Whatever. I never thought that I'd ever see Senators fans displaying animosity towards Oilers fans but we're getting that as well.

Rangers fans are the best and most down to earth fans on the board. I can have a hockey conversation with pretty much all of them. And they respect the heck out of the Oilers franchise too. Maybe it's the Messier connection.

Considering the vitriol that the poster is carrying himself with, it kind of is.

People, You are forgetting a few things concerning Petry...........last year he was not very physical.....he did not even pin forwards coming down the boards and he certainly did not knock anybody down in front of the net!

Just hope that he learns this coming year........the salary seem fair to me if he can stay in the line up!

I wasn't sure if there was a particular incident involving Petry or not. Yeah since the RNH/Landeskog battles they have been down right ruthless towards us. I'm pretty sure we've all moved on, but they sure as hell haven't.

Hopefully he can prove during this contract that he is worth a long term deal on his next deal. Smart deal by Tambo. Petry needs to prove he can handle a full NHL season before they commit long term.

Petry has shown flashes of his upside, but I think a lot of his solid play is chocked up to being partnered with Smid.

This is a great deal for the Oilers though, its a cheap $$ and it means his next contract he will still be an RFA as well.

Petry was fine defensively unless it was a 1on1 situation. Skilled guys were turning him inside out. It was embarassing sometimes. lol. But you're understating his physicality this season. He stepped it up as the season went on.

He led the team in TOI and had 120+ hits. No idea what you're talking about. Compare that to Smid's 180 hits.

This contract is a steal whichever way you put it..
