I echo sentiments above that the 3-on-3 wasn't an ideal format. It scarcely resembled a hockey game...more like "fun time" at the end of a practice. Everyone was coasting. We saw offense, to be sure...but we didn't see much of what these young men really bring to the table vis a vis their all-around games.
And man was it annoying when they ran 30-second replays of goals while there was live game action going on.
Perron's move was completely insane. I didn't think it was physically possible to handle the puck so many times across such a short distance of ice. If he pulled that off in a shootout in front of a full house at the Scotty, he wouldn't make it back to Nelson's house that night due to all the puck bunnies throwing themselves at him.
Did you see Perron in the locker room after the Youngstars game? Man is he small! If this kid can add ten or more pounds of beefcake over the summer, given his attitude, he is going to be great. It's amazing that he is as agressive as he is with his lean frame. He can handle the bunnies, they are probably tougher on the body than the Wings.
