Salary is hardly an issue, as he is halfway through 2.8 million of the final year of his contract. But if Sutter wants the Habs to pick up some of the remaining 1.4 million, he will probably have to surrender a decent draft pick, perhaps a 3rd or a 4th. It's doubtful that there would be any other roster player involved
salary is a HUUUGEE issue. this is the team that kept Montador over Commodore because of a few hundred K, waived Jason Morgan to save his NHL salary and had to STRETCH to add Kiprusoff....1.4 M for half a year of Perreault is a big deal, and we wouldn't trade a 3rd rounder for the pleasure of the Habs picking up his salary.
besides Reinprecht is back now, and Conroy next week. we don't need Perreault at the expense of any tangible assets
