Food for though man, before we ship Perrault out (of course, unless Eakin is close enough, then we are good to dump MP85)
There's always Aucoin for temporary spot. If you average it out over enough games the dropoff in production from Perreault to Aucoin probably isn't great.

Agreed, though, that Perreault's safety in the org. will depend on both Eakin's readiness and Halpern's ability to play above the 4th line (or the coaching staff's comfort with him in such a position, at least).
