Yep. I was talking yesterday with a good mate of mine that lives in St. Louis and is a die-hard Blues fan about this trade. He thought it was a good trade for the Blues because it frees up a couple of million in cap space (which they're in dire need of), and he thinks Paajarvi will be a good fit, but in his exact words, "You're getting a hell of a hockey player."
The only issue I heard about Perron which might end up being a problem is that (according to my friend) he has a tendency to freelance (a la Hemsky) which can lead to broken plays.
