The guy scored 37 goals last year, and somehow you and others think because he did not lead the league in goals, that he should be off the team. Glad you are not the GM. Perry will be on the team in Sochi. Yzerman mentioned the same thing in the summer how he liked what Perry, Nash, Richards and Toews did in 2010 to help Canada win GOLD.
If this were NHL ice, then Perry sure! Big ice? No! I think he takes too many penalties, and even worse too many dumb penalties. Hey I'm not in the Perry camp! you are! that's fine. Like I said, 20 million hockey fans in Canada you'll get 20 million opinions. Perron is a better than decent player, can play either side LW/RW is a better skater, better defensive player and in a year and a half his stats should be equal to Perry's stats...making him a better fit on my Team Canada. When stats are equal, I'll always opt for the younger, faster, better defensively and all round better player. If Perry is not a 40 goal 40 assist player come selection time, then Team Canada should move on.
