Right now Perron>MPS, and it's not very close at all.
Over their entire careers, Perron>MPS, and it wasn't very close.
Looking to the future we have one guy (Perron) who's shown he can play a top 6 role effectively and should continue to do so, and we have another guy (MPS) who we all think might have the potential, but has yet to do jack **** with it regardless of how wonderful his attitude is.
We've spent the last few years banking on potential. It's time for some god damn results.
I loved MPS just like the rest of you guys, but he's don'e nothing to justify his draft position and it's time for the patient rebuilding to stop. Some people are acting like Perron is just a quick fix upgrade, but really we have him for at least 3 more years minimum by which time we should already be a competitive team, not one that's waiting for high picks to pan out.
This is exactly it and 100% true.
