I foolishly believed that one reason we got Perron was so that we could possibly trade one of our younger players for immediate help.
Couldn't disagree more. First of all Perron isn't that small, second he plays with a ton of grit. I could care less how big a player is if they play like they are small. Perron is exaclty what this team needs. He has been a great addition. Any one who watched how pumped he was to score the game winner on sat realizes that he is exaclty what we need.
