Unconventional wisdom maybe but my response is that Yak is a better defensive choice than Eberle (the allround nature of Yaks game will be seen more and more) and I just think Perron will fit better with Yak and Gagner. Plus I don't think you want to feature Perron on topline, ideally you put him on 2nd line. His chaos offense working much better against non shutdown pair. jmo
Defensively Eberle needs RNH's cover game more than Perron or Yak will.
