No team lives up to peoples idea of what a perfect team with no holes is.
This is a great point, and one that I think we tend to overlook.
On a separate note, I always liked Paajarvi, and wished he'd hit his stride with us. But the fact is, Perron is the better player. For once, we are getting the best player in a trade, and we're not the team getting a prospect who may or may not turn out better than the big name. These are exactly the kinds of moves that we wanted MacT to make this summer.
