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.
Yah I agree. Perron is a legit second line player. He isn't old, he isn't a borderline second/third line tweener, he is a second line winger. He isn't small (I don't consider 6 foot 205 lbs small) and he gets in the face of the other team. He just completed his 24 year old season and is still young so maybe he can develop into a 25-30 goal scorer, 55-60 point producer consistantly. He isn't far from that now.
