    Huge get, and I really like that PK and Pacioretty saw that in him as well and called him personally to tell him that they'd really like him to stay. He's going to be a big part of this teams next few years.

    Looking at the Oilers first few games gives you an ever bigger appreciation for the stuff he does. How they could just give him to us like that still bugles my mind.

    He's quickly becoming one of my favourite players.

    Penguins traded Despres
    Oilers traded Petry
    we traded McDonut

    mistakes happen everywhere really, just more often in Edmonton

    So what was it? A second and a fourth? I'll laugh for the rest of my life at that cost.

    What an idiot that other GM.

    And kudos to the joke in the Bruins GDT about how the Oilers had a surplus of dman which meant Petry was available. Watching the Oilers D squad induces stomach aches. Don't remember the poster though...

    This guy's awesome. He, PK and Markov were the only breakout we had last night.

    that GM MacT gave Nikita Nikitin (currently in AHL) 4.5 mil but thought it was a good idea to give his own home grown, home developed guy, that they invested over 200 games in... a "challenge"....

    MacT still works for the Oilers... I'm serious, he's some kind of "mini-me" character floating around there in the Edmonton mgt...

    this is also why they have 4 1st overall pick in their lineup and they still suck, everything about the oilers is a joke

    This guy is a great player. He's better than a #3. I trust him more than any other defenseman on the roster in the defensive zone.

    This is how they gave him to us -- Oilers management concocted a Bugle but forgot to add the trumpet mouthpiece. :sarcasm:

    and they brought in Ference and Fayne...

    an old 175 #er, and a guy that, frankly is a non factor in anything

    let's summarize, shall we... while issuing a "challenge " 1 year contract to Petry... they brought in Nikitin (AHL), Ference, (scratched now since they stripped Captaincy away), Fayne (there's NOTHING to say about him), and payed Shultz more to boot... (fifteen mil cap hit on those 4 stiffs)

    it's a mess

    Imagine the Oilers if they had selected Ryan Murray in 2012, which many posters suggested because of the state of their defense.

    Well, hindsight is 20/20. Their defense wouldve looked more sound, they would still have the offense.

    Tbh if the oilers get ONE good trade for a defenseman, they will be pretty competitve

    The Petry trade is probably the most beneficial trade Bergy has made. The Vanek and Ryder trade were good short term but Petry not only fills a big hole on the backend but is here long term too. He is also just starting the prime of his career.

    Meh, we got a top 4 guy entering his prime and stayed long term. Couldn't care less about that pick. :laugh:

    I agree, screw the pick. We needed a solid #3 right now, we're contending RIGHT NOW, that second pick won't help us in the current mindset

    Yeah, imagine having

    Markov-Subban
    Emelin-Gilbert
    Beaulieu-Pateryn

    Petry on that 2nd pairing makes it look so much better

    Petry plays a very effective game and fits in perfectly with this Habs team.
