The real question is: How effective would he be in 2-3 years? Making it to the NHL and being an effective player at that level often have very different timeframes.

Whole lot of people not knowing anything about Petry. Obviously he's not worth Hamonic but saying scraps and spare parts makes people look foolish

As foolish as fans, told the Isles think 23 yr old Hamonic is developing into a stud, refusing to grasp the NYI would want 1 young star back, not 2-3 lesser pieces?

I think quite. He's pretty underrated by most scouts imo. Let him come in on the bottom pair, and give him some PP time, and he'll thrive

Oiler fans: That's great, but don't act like your guys are all amazing and ours are dog**** just because you don't want to trade your guy.

Did I get this right?
Sums it up perfectly.
