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
The way I look at Perrault and Ribs are similar players, both are slow and soft, the only difference between them is Ribs has great hands and vision while Perrault has a very accurate shot and is great on face offs.

If you watch them both play, they both will steer wide of the physical play, which is the reason why Perrault has never been an impact player and why Mike's potential is only as a 55-60 point man.
