Perrault, much maligned IMHO, has 10 goals in 30 games. Thats like 25 goals per year, and is killer on faceoffs, and has a knack for scoring when we need it most. Thats a keeper IMHO.

Beech doesnt exactly fit on the energy line, and Johnson is the checking center.

So, where does Beech go?

That leaves one spot. Legwand's. I refuse to get in on the pro or anti Legwand debate.

But, it is nice to have a guy like Beech on hand if needed.
I don't disagree, but it troubles me that on such a good team, there's 4 checking line centers. Fiddler is playing great, no doubt...but I think we're expecting a lot to hope that he'll keep it up in a first line role. It's one thing to shine against the Hawks and BlueJackets...but we've got the Oilers, Flames and Canucks coming up....away from home.

Well, nothing to do but sit back and hope for the best
