Long term?
Gordon, Laich, and Hendricks aren't signed past this season. While your assesment that Perreault might not have a future as a center on the Capitals is absolutely correct, it has very little to do with guys like Boyd Gordon or Matt Hendricks. If, for some reason, MP85 and Boyd Gordon ended up competing for the same role (which they won't, given they're very different players), the team could just as easily side with Perreault.

I'll agree with this.
