Perreault was the most talented of all of them.

Just ask New York Rangers fans how they like Rick Nash at the moment , it's not because of his productivity per say , it's because he's dangerous and dominating everytime he enters the offensive zone , even if he doesn't score.That can be tiring for the other team and make them nervous , even if that domination doesn't always translate to goals.I think the same was true with Perreault on a higher level.
