I think they're close enough value-wise for a 1-for-1 swap - Perron's younger and is all-around better on offense, while Laich is bigger, significantly more durable, and is the better two-way player. So, thoughts?
As much as I would like to upgrade our 3rd liner center position, it is not worth losing DP. First off, DP is worth more than Laich. And secondly, it would make our team weaker than if we had DP and a lesser 3rd line center.

And I am pretty sure this has been stated before, but here it is again. The only way that Armstrong upgrades his team will be via picks/prospects only, his words. And of course if it was a huge piece coming back to St. Louis, he definitely would include a nhl player. But Laich is not a huge piece.
