1. depends on your definition of 'hands'. Yakupov and Eberle IMO are a lot better than Perron when it comes to sniping.. Hemsky of 5 yrs ago was sick when it came to undressing Dmen and goalies. Him and RNH should still be an upgrade over Perron when it comes to playmaking.
Perron from the clips ive seen and from STL fans' comments sounds like Hall lite.. a little selfish who tries to do it all himself using his skill, speed and hard forecheck.
Edit: Horcoff vs Gordon ... put me in the Gordon>Horc camp .. Gordon has a defined role.. Horcoff's ice time will be put to better use especially on PP.
