Acquiring Clarkson would have meant somebody would have to play on their off wing.
Perron is a right handed shot but can play LW. Although Hitchcock says he would be more effective on RW its almost a lock that Perron will be used on LW.
Even though Clarkson brings more physicality he does not offer value for his contract. Perron while less physical is a much better finisher, provides some grit and brings very good value for his contract.
