It would be interesting to see if Trotz would play Perrault at wing or run three scoring type lines if we acquired another top 6 center. I think Perrault has definite offensive skill, but playing center in our system exposes his weaknesses so much more. I can't say that he isn't "working", rather it seems like he is just inept defensively. He is skating harder than some of our defensemen to get back, but even if he is in position theoretically, it seems the puck still goes in the net. If we did shift him, he could still take faceoffs...Heck, if we traded for Jokinen, we may not even need to break up the top two lines...a Hartnell - Jokinen - Hall line would be dangerous in its own right (not that I can see us trading for Jokinen at this time).
