Very seldom does the 2nd line (at least last year) get matched up vs the other teams top line.
All that being said it seems very obvious that we cant afford to have a player on our team that lives on his faceoff and sniper skills. If we had 2 Selke trophy candidates that we could put on his line to do all the leg work for him and set him up as he is floating around the ice all game then sure lets keep him. I much rather see a player like Ribeiro on the ice that still has something to prove and his upside if far higher than Perrault who seems to be on the downside of his career.
The question is which GM would be willing to take him and give something in return...I think a desperate playoff-bound team would be tempted to overpay for him come trading deadline (2nd pick maybe?)
If you take note of the post that I made earlier in this thread, I said that I felt Perreault was 'none of the above' (in regards to the options on the poll). I went on to say that he is an ideal 3rd line center, in my opinion.
when a player is on the ice for a penalty and the other team scores... he doesn't get a -1? Can someone please clarrify this for me becuase that is something that I've never heard before.
