As Oiler fans we were hoping for someone with size in top 6 to offset all the midgets we have but were not able to land the Clarkson'ish player. Perron deal seemed like a plan B \ an afterthought.. Seems to be working out for EDM with some of our skilled guys out of the lineup and Hall playing C.
Hopefully he works out for EDM when the real season starts.
Perron can play along the boards and can play like a grinder, that's the one thing a lot of people take for granted. Sure he's got speed and an ability to score, but he can offer some strength too.
