There's only 60 minutes in a game. Only so many o-zone starts, so many d-zone starts, only so much PP time, etc. Gionta can't get it done at an acceptable rate on the PP (haha) or on the top line. Leaving him in the middle 6, which he'll be surpassed by Patches, DD, Gallagher and Galchenyuk. Therefore: 3rd line at best.

It's SCAPEGOAT. Repeat and spellcheck: SCAPEGOAT.
That's what I said. Spacegoat. What's the problem?

Also, we have more than enough cap space to accomodate a 8-9m Perry next season with Gionta in the lineup. We just have to NO sign Gionta in 2014 summer when his contract expires.
The cap is going down to 64m, there is no way Gionta AND Perry fit in - no way.

Who cares that he is an "overpaid 3rd liner"? The more depth the better. Gionta is not producing in our current Top6, but he is hardly a liability to this team and helps Plek shutdown top opposition.

All of this hasn't anything to do with the capacity to sign Perry.
You're ignoring reality. You can't have a top6 with 3 players under 5'8" nor a 5m third-liner. End of story.

All of these lines are just pulled right out of your ass and hardly make your argument. It doesn't change the fact that Gionta hasn't proved to be a liability in our Top 6 line, even if he isn't producing. Adding Perry to the Team would knock him down the Depth chart, which is all the better.
If you can't refute the arguments, you're not worth arguing with. If you add Perry and don't remove anyone else - Gionta doesn't fit at all. If you can't see that, then you don't really understand to much, now do you?
