What are NHL fans saying about the Jeff Petry for Gustav Lindström trade?

Awesome move by Kent Hughes. The Habs get a young defenseman plus a draft pick and we free up salary cap space.

Huge win for Steve Yzerman and the Detroit Red Wings. We get Jeff Petry retained at 50%. Can’t complain about that.

Red Wings needed Petry. Their defensive core was looking terrible until this trade.
