I've become convinced Perreault's offense is better than his regular season numbers indicate, because a player like him who relied on speed and puck skills was definitely held back by playing his home games on Buffalo's smaller ice surface.
I think this is the big disconnect between his stats and observations of those who saw him play.
I'm assuming the ATD is played on standard NHL sized rinks? In that case Perreault wouldn't be as good as his international stats indicate, but better than his NHL stats (since half of his games were played on the small rink).
Not all players are affected by rink size, but Perreault definitely was.
