What is undeniable is that we didn't get good value on Perron
. Pääjärvi has had pretty clear struggles and we got a second to compensate for the current difference. There were other circumstances that forced us to sell low, but ultimately we got poor value.
That doesn't mean I hate the trade, I like Pääjärvi in the long term and I think this makes us a better team going forward.
I think getting a reliable, 22 year old 3rd liner, plus a 2nd round pick, is more than fair compensation for Perron. Perron was an integral part of this team for the past 5 years, so I can see why many people don't think this was an even trade, but Paajarvi is a good fit for our team and that 2nd could easily turn into another Rattie, Jaskin, or Carrier.
