He wasn't ready to be a #1 when Edmonton expected him to be that. When he signed in Montreal he fell in behind Markov and Subban. It was the perfect scenario for him to mature to what he is now.Yep.
Thought he was just another overrated oilers dman. Turns out he was their best, and they dumped him because oil change.
That was what? 7 years ago?
Factoid: over its last 6 drafts, the Penguins have drafted one player who has played more than 200 games. Kasperi Kapanen.
Yeah he's been a solid 1B for a few years. No drama either just solid work. He is prone to brain farts though but not often.I don’t remember zeke’s opinion, but I definitely thought it was an awful move at the time. Didn’t know enough about Petry, and assumed that as an Oilers reject, he must be shit.
Damn could they have ever used him for all these years though. Great 2nd pair RHD at worst, and borderline top pair.
