I'm not sure about that. This is a quote from Spector:

"Suter admitted to TSN that he's looking for a quality faceoff guy and obviously Perreault is one of the best..."

I don't know Suter very well, and I certainly agree that Gauthier 1 for 1 would be overpaying for Perreault, but maybe there is an interest there. He probably has him pegged for a 3rd line role with added faceoff responsibilities.

From our end, I don't think Montreal would ask for too much in return. A 2nd round pick should seal the deal.

Also, I believe he will be a UFA this summer. Good news for the Flames is that I think Perreault realizes he's overpaid and will settle for less money next year.
