Perron has only played 3 full seasons in the NHL. There's plenty of potential for growth. Stastny has peaked already--you're not going to see anything better than those 79-point seasons he's put together.

And IMO, Perron has yet to be centered by a true playmaker. St. Louis needs to get an elite center if they want to contend--right now Backes/Berglund/Steen is pretty solid, but rather pedestrian. Andy McDonald is pretty much done.

The younger guy with more potential has a cap hit just over half of the other guy. It's not a contest.
