We don't need to trade for Petry. Just change Kindl's name to Petry and have him hold the stick with the right hand.
Honest question. Could'nt a player learn to shoot with both hands? When I played goal, I was naturally a right hander, but I learnt to shoot left so I did'nt have to make the switch over to right to move the puck. I'm sure with practice a player could learn. Maybe not right away, but eventually could be good enough to use their other hand in a game.
to switch the sides one should be able to adjust vision, balance, hand eye coordination and such. It will not work in most cases.
What is the big deal with Petry ? Why would someone give up a draft pick to get this guy. He is one of the worst d man on the worst team. The only upside is that he is a right handed shooter and looks like DeKeyser. Only if can be swapped with Kindl straight up.
