perreault hasnt always hustled. his mo was always to go gangbusters his first couple games back in the lineup and then his production and then his overall play would retreat.
he could keep his edge.
oates says that its not about production but about playing the right way. he wants consistant play.
When you put a talented C with 4th liners, don't expect him to be a shutdown centerman.
When MP played with good wingers, he always fed them passes for scoring chances....and he always worked hard.
If you cannot find him a spot on an offensive line, trade him....somebody else will play him.
