The knock on Perreault always has been his skating abilites and poor defensive play. In today's NHL that is a bad combo. Yes, he's a good shooter and a great face-off guy, but too many negatives about his game. Plus he's a streaky guy. He'll score two goals one game and then you won't hear from him for 10 games.
Since you are supposed to have left your left ball after his signing last season ( bad bid you lost ) , does the fact that he signs with a new team this season , means that it's the turn of your right one ?
