I never hear any complain from him. Yes he is an expensive fourth liner but any team in the league has some deadwood. He still wins faceoff. He is slow and not physical but we all know that since the first day we sign him.
He is not scoring but we shouldn't expect much from a person playing on 4th line.
He is the insurance if one of our top line centre get injured.
He is in the last year of contract anyways, why do everyone want him to leave.
I imagine, if he is on another team and the Habs get him for playoff run then everyone will say Gainey made a good move to get a faceoff specialist for the playoff.
Get off Perreault's back!
Good post.
I've always stated everybody knew what we were getting when we signed Perreault. Savard knew what we were getting. If Perreault was some defensive specialist speed demon who put up the same amount of points if would of cost us double to get him, if we could of got him at all.
