This is where we need someone to be a leader and get the guys playing a team
Disagree about including Perron on that list. He's been fine defensively, and is good at picking his spots when it comes to dangling vs passing vs shooting. Him, RNH, Gordon have been who I believe to generally be our 3 best forwards so far this year.
