Kariya and Tkachuk are gone which will increase his playing time and being one of the only natural LW's on the team. He was 17th in time on ice with the Blues and scored 47 points still. I expect him to be right around 60.
Exactly. Thanks for elaborating. 60 points isn't a stretch in any capacity.

Great signing, i thought he would go for 2.5+. Hopefully this signing also lowers the price of Raymond.

Nope.

Steen's deal bought his final year of RFA status and three years of UFA. Perron's deal is two years of RFA status with one year remaining.

Actually, Perron will still be a RFA after this year. Which makes this signing even better.

That is really not a big jump at all and he was on the third line often with no talent at points. He will see more time on the Power Play this year with Kariya gone. Excellent deal for the Blues.

Excellent deal for Perron. Gooch should make a tad bit more due to production. Time to sign him now to a 2-3 yr contract DW.

I can not think of any team (besides edm) who would offer that kind of stupid money for Perron.

Ughhh I think 2.5 is more than reasonable for Perron. That is $5 mill for 2 years.

$3 mill per might be too much based on current performance, but it would be justifiable based on potential if a deal did occur.

The contract he got is a steal.

I believe he thought the guy meant $5-6m PER YEAR, which would be a significant overpayment for Perron. I think he could have gotten $2.5m-3m/year though, I'm pretty happy with these numbers.

I like David Perron and I like this deal. I could very easily see Perron hitting 75 - 80 points this year. He's just so silky smooth with the puck. I say put him, Backes and Berglund on a line and just let them run wild.

Hopefully he brakes out this year. I thought he would last year.

Good number, it makes Brassards deal look even worse now with Perron signing a nice low number.

I was very surprised the Blues got him this low. I thought he'd be pushing 2.5 - 3. Excellent signing.

Go Blues!! Nice to see Blues organisation doing things right... Draft was a success, and now this... Now he has time to develop with added icetime... I like this a lot, this guy can hit 60-70 points this season if healthy... he has the potential, that's something we know... Now we must ink EJ for 16 mil/4years?!? I'm looking forward this season, nice to see what our group can do without any Nr.1 scorer...

Even tho Pat White got the Nucks Ehrhoff, Perron was a Huge steal at Number 26 of the draft.
The kid has good puck possesion skills, can deke almost any defenseman n good wheels.
60 points is a huge stretch for this kid, Hell I'd say 35 goals isn't a stretch with the new ice time n roster space. First pp unit time.
Blues look to be a team to watch this October. I think the Blues have a Mtl Esque Run in mind this year.

Perron will have two more years of RFA status after this deal. He's already accrued 3 seasons, this contract will take him through 2 more seasons, and then it will take him another 2 years to get his 7 years accrued and UFA status.

Pretty good deal, but I wonder why only 2 years?

Blues management wants both Perron and EJ to prove themselves a bit more before getting long term deals. Especially with EJ after his missed year, but Perron also has played pretty well, but not well enough to warrant a 5-7 year deal worth more money. If management is one thing, it is careful about its long term contracts. Especially after the Brewer extension and McKee signing, which both backfired a bit.

I like it a lot actually. Not gonna screw ourselves with terrible contracts, keeps the guys hungry to improve since they are working for a raise more quickly, and they will both still be RFA's for that next contract. Could potentially be more expensive 2 years from now, but only if he really steps up his game, which is very worth the risk.

What?

He'll be making $175,000 more than Boogaard next year and less than a million more than that goon the following year.

If any team has made a bargain signing this year, this would be right at the top of the list.
