Robo has impressed me with his speed and passing in particular, and his defense hasn't looked bad, either.

I'm not crazy about either, but it just feels like Perreault is the sort of filler guy we would have signed in 01-02...not 05-06. He's noticeably weaker in every way than any other forward in the top six.
All that being said....I still have doubts in my mind that we are 8-1-1 right now if we have Robitaille instead of Perrault....granted we could easily be 4-4-2 without some opportune goals right now.....but some of those opportune goals were by the Orange Cone....
