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!

I don't get why everybody keeps saying, "If Saku or Ribs go down, we'll need Perreault" The only use of Yannick Perreault as of today is his faceoff ability, that's it! He can't replace Saku or Ribs on the first two lines if they were injured because, he can't pass, can't stickhandle and he's not creative....Zednik, Bulis, Dagenais and Ryder, all need creative centers for them to succeed, nothing against Perreault, i'm not saying he's not a good player, but he no longer fits THIS teams needs, were way better of calling up Plekanec or Higgins to center the one of the first two lines if Saku or Ribs go down or at worst putting Bulis back at center.

Perreault had a good run as a Hab but it's time to part ways, and with Begin back on Saturday, I think and I hope this is the end of Perreault
