Ok if Petry is so good behind Weber (Habs' #1RHD), why are the habs so far out of the playoff hunt? So let me sum this up, the impressively performing Habs #2 RHD defensemen is to become the Leafs #1 RDH, and the Leaf's should grossly overpay the Habs because the Leafs eligibly appear to have overpaid for another defender. Does this really make sense to you... come on be honest? Maybe a little wishful thinking, may....be? Check your bias, please!
The Habs standing in the league isn't Jeff Petry's fault.
1- The Habs have a very top-heavy D where 3 guys get WAY more ice-time then everyone and those 3 are within less than a minute of each other.
2- Petry has actually taken Weber's spot on the top powerplay unit
3- Which RHD that's currently on the Leafs is better than Jeff Petry? None, so that makes him their new #1 D. (Habs bias? I'm a Leafs fan but sure...)
4- Ceci is a salary dump, not a valuable asset. It actually costs something to get rid of him.
5- Weal is only there to make the trade cap compliant.
6- You can read the rest of my comment now to actually get the whole message.
