    We get a nothing defenceman for a nothing defenceman and a pick. Chiarelli loses another one.

    Petrovic always seemed like a guy who was destined to go back home. How he is as a player nowadays though, I'm not exactly familiar with.

    Took creative liberty with the title.

    I remember Petrovic getting punked three times in a trio of fights with Kane. I remember him being a one-timer trigger for RNH before he matriculated and Dumba became that guy.

    Can't be worse than Wideman...

    Hope the pick is minimal. Hope the Panthers retained salary...

    Petrovic was trending very well a few years ago. Looks like he's fallen off a cliff.

    Another Pray for a miracle trade.

    Why a 3rd rounder too?

    So in the end.. a 3rd and 6th for Petrovic.

    Chia sucks

    Petrovic could be traded for a 3rd round pick if he sucks. The Oilers can flip him at the trade deadline.

    Nothing trade

    Giving up a 3rd for UFA Petrovic is getting desperate. Basically deadline prices. Atleast Petro is a righty, but ugh. Feels like trading an oar for a pail on a sinking ship.

    Sounds like it'll be whichever of the two 3rd round picks we have that year that are better draft position.

    Shouldn't have lost Aberg and Zykov. This GM stinks.

    I like it. We get rid of Wideman and get a punishing D who can hit and bring some physicality. Good addition and Chia showing some response (but way late) to the D injury predicament. A vet that can help steady the ship and good enough to be around even when we get healthy.

    Good Edmonton boy, reasonable contract but only for this year so this is a rental unless we can resign. If we do resign it can open up a move of one of our higher priced D which would provide some cap space relief.

    Don't know the draft pick we're giving up yet, but so far I like it.

    edit its only a third round pick. Great pick up. Its hilarious that Petrovic was one of the players Florida protected in the expansion draft while losing Marchessault and Smith. One of those rare moments when we're fleecing some other team.

    That said Wideman had no interest in being here and exhibited it on the ice. He was basically a flagman here waving opponents in on goal and saying have a good day..Wideman strikes me as somebody who might play better in Florida. It wasn't going to be here.

    Haha. Florida gets the better 3rd as well. A seventh defenseman for a seventh defenseman and we toss in in a 3rd for fun.

    Good gawd.
