From JR's piece:

Perron believes he's past any lingering concussion problems and said that having the summer to work out, unlike last year, will make a dramatic difference when he arrives at training camp.

"I'm ways ahead of where I was at any point last year," he said. "I've been training like a maniac lately and feeling really good."

The winger said that he wants to return to his pre-injury form. Prior to the hit by San Jose's Joe Thornton on Nov. 4, 2010, leading to the concussion, Perron had five goals, two assists and a plus-minus rating of plus 7 in 10 games.

"When you look at the 10 games, I was really good not only on the offensive side of the puck but defensively I was really aware out there," he said. "I think last year, I showed some flashes of that, but I want to be really good on both sides of the puck and be really aware out there and obviously provide more offense, even more than I did last year."
