Hard to imagine what sort of scouting could have been done a Petan considering how little he has played over the last few years. What stood out that prompted this move and signing? I just would have thought a guy within might be more inline like a Bracco?
They may see Bracco as more then a 4th liner. He's also a winger, where Petan is a centre. There's something the Leafs see in him, obviously, they have been able to watch him for almost a month now. Cheap signing, can be put on the Marlies so all good or plucked off waivers if he can't cut it. Can't have enough depth.

I guess. Apart from that one goal, all I've seen him do is get pushed off the puck with one hand from opposing defencemen. I can't see him being next year's Ennis, so I'm a bit baffled why he was acquired period, let alone extended. I'd sooner have Engvall up with the club.

I'm with you Frycer.  But not a big thing one way or the other.

Noticed the same thing when Petan gets knocked off the puck easily.  A guy his size should be using his speed to try and avoid the corners & big d-men. 

That lone goal which he scored is a perfect example of being at the right place at the right time using your speed for sheer advantage.  Obviously Dubas must know more than we do about Petan’s Leafian potentials.
