As a Blues fan I agree Perron deserves higher placement than most are giving him but it's also understandable why folks who don't watch Blues games regularly forget about him. He was gone for so long and rejoined a team already playing well.

His points per minute of ice time easily lead the Blues in the limited # of games he's been back and he is gifted with the puck. More time back will cause his stock to rise. The Blues scored two major impact players on their current team from this draft Perron and Shattenkirk. Cole wasn't too shabby, and maybe even Fairchild could peek into the re-rankings in a year or two, as he's someone to keep an eye on. Obviously Habs fans are happy with Eller.

I see Oilers fans pushing Gagner higher and I realize he's been more productive lately but I also remember earlier this season when fans were trying to give him away in trade threads. Glad to see he's turned it around and gotten hot. But no way would I take him over Perron.
