I really like Petry, I’m glad we have him, but given his age this contract gets a sort of “meh” from me.

 

im definitely not upset by it, but Petry will actually be 38 I think when it’s done?

Pleased with the signing. I like Petry. It's nice to have talented players that want to stay here, I'm sure he could've commanded more on the market next summer.

That's all our top-six defencemen under contract for at least two years. Now, we have seven forwards who will need new contracts a year from now. Re-sign, trade or wait? Will be looking forward to some action on that front now.

37. Only two years older than Weber is now.

 

And six years younger than Chara is now. :)

 

I don't think Petry has had any major injuries and he is such a smooth skater that he won't deteriorate as quickly as others.  Plus he loves Montreal and wants to be here. A good signing.

even if I had suggested trading Petry before. I am glad with the signing. Stabilized the D for the Weber - Price window

 

it also gives the prospects time to develop and gives MB a position of strength to negotiate contracts or to trade prospect and picks to solidify the team

I'm glad we signed Petry.

 

Now, I'm probably in the minority here, but I find our D  quite weak overall.

It would take  Romanov or Norlinder to become ELITE  very very quickly for me not wanting to aquire a #1LD.

Without this LEGIT  #1 LD,   Chiarot, Kulak and anyone on the left side will always be in the wrong chair IMO.

I love Petry. He was always a decent rushing D-man, but he has aged like fine wine, turning into an elite d-man in his 30s.

I'm a bit nervous about the age factor. Not in a tizzy about it, but a bit concerned.

I said all along that MB would not get imaginative with the aging D - rather, he will continue with the status quo - and this is right in line with that.

There's a hint of worry, but it's a modest amount. I think four years is a perfect term to have him locked up without extending too deep into old waters.

True, and even if we overpay on the back end a bit, we are saving on the front end, because Petry is more than a 6.25 mil defenceman in my opinion. He is an absolute stud #2 defender.

I I like the cap hit and term - thought it would be $7M+ and at least 5 years. Don’t like the NMC. Would have been nice to have. Limited NTC for the last two years.

Petry, not Weber, is our best defenceman. 

 

Nothing against Weber, Petry is just better. 

 

On the ice, I agree. In the change room, Weber may have more of an impact. In any case, it's academic as Bergevin will surely not trade or expose Weber.

Per The Athletic, he has a NMC and a 15-team NTC ... the NMC means he cannot be put on waivers (i.e., demoted to the AHL) or exposed in the expansion draft, trades are governed by the NTC ... same details as his current contract

So, which D will be protected in the expansion draft? Weber, Petry and ... Chiarot? Unless Kulak or Mete shows serious progress next season.

A major factor could be Weber's health ... if he misses a significant number of games (***NOT*** predicting or expecting such), then approaching age 36 next summer he might not then be very interesting to Seattle ... or perhaps missed by the Habs if he were claimed (depending on the actual injury/injuries)

the whole change room thing to me is so over blown... as long as your not a complete douche bag all that matters is how you perfrorm on the ice, and that you have your players back at all times!

Maybe. Roman Josi thinks differently, though:

 

Quote

"Coming up as a young kid and seeing Shea Weber practice every day, seeing him play every day - and then I got to play with him on a pairing - it was pretty cool," Josi said. "There's nothing better for a young kid to learn from a guy like him. He's one of those guys [who] definitely deserves to win the Norris, and he's just such a great person and such a great player to learn from. I was very lucky."

When Scotty bowman was told that a player was good in the room, can’t remember the precise response (it’s been around 15 years), he said something to the effect let him stay in the room.
