Teams Showing Interest In Jeff Petry

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,

The Ducks are one of the teams looking for defence reinforcements if they don’t have to give up too much as are Montreal, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Tampa and the Rangers. Oiler GM Craig MacTavish wants a draft pick and young body for Petry who was injured against Boston Bruins this past Wednesday when hit by an Adam McQuaid shot. The two games he’s just missed are the only two for medical reasons this year.

The Habs are looking for a second-pairing D to play with Alexei Emelin in a shutdown situation. The Wings have liked Russian rookie Alexey Marchenko, 23, a right-handed D like Petry, but are looking for one more experienced hand. The Ducks, who have Sami Vatanen out at least a month with a leg injury, are in the same boat as Detroit, as is Pittsburgh which wants to upgrade its third pairing. Tampa is getting Matt Carle back from abdominal surgery but has lost Radko Gudas (right knee) for the season. The Rangers are looking for a partner for Dan Boyle.

more with Matheson wondering if the Oilers should sit Petry to make sure he is healthy...

I believe it would take more than Ferraro and a 3rd rounder.  I was thinking the asking price is more along the lines of a 2nd round pick and Athanasiou.

Well, if we end up playing Tampa in the first round we dont have to deal with “Elbows” atleast.

I just don’t think a good prospect like Anthanasiou is worth a rental. How about we give them Smith??? lmao.. or Erricson instead?

Jarnkrok isn’t an impact player.

This ^^^.  I have no problem with the Jarnkrok trade.  Maybe he shows something over time but so far, nothing to get upset about.

The experience the kids got in the playoffs last year was priceless and I’m not sure we get there without the trade.
