Perreault Invited

Didn't see this anywhere...

Perreault coming to Preds' camp
Center Yanic Perreault has accepted a tryout invitation extended by the Nashville Predators and will attend the team's training camp, which opens Monday, Sept. 12. An 11-year NHL veteran with stints in Toronto, Los Angeles and Montreal, the 5-11, 185-pound native of Sherbrooke, Quebec is consistently among the league's best in the face-off circle. He has won over 60 percent of his draws in each of the last five seasons and has amassed career totals of 195 goals and 212 assists for 407 points in 671 NHL games.

it's worth noting that this guy makes robo look like john madden or mike peca. soft as a baby's bum and disinterested in anything that goes on in the defensive zone.

a win-win situation. Didn't give up anything for him, maybe he'll come ready to make a mark.

It makes perfect sense in a sad sort of way.

This means Poile is putting pressure on these underachievers to try and get some kind of production out of someone.

He's better than Robo, he sucks at defense too, but he's better in the face off circle and has produced more on the NHL level.

I can't wait to see Perreault in training camp! I think he has a VERY good shot at being signed by the Preds.

which one skates well? ... major plus for Trotz' system, which one is small and is easily manhandled one on one, and which one is a faceoff specialist?

Without looking at the links.

Let's see both Robo and Perreault are small, easily manhandled one on one.
According to scouting reports like forecasters Beech skates well for his size, but won't be mistaken for a good skater. So I'd say Robo is the better skater but that doesn't mean he fits Trotz system better as he doesn't use his speed defensively, either.

Perreault is better offensively and at face-offs but older, slower and weaker
Robo is the fastest of the three, has good face-off skills but still weak defensively
Beech is the slowest, strongest and has the highest ceiling but least experience.

I'd also say that beech is the best defensively and not terrible offensively, thus making him trotz's early choice.

It's my favorite player since he play with Leafs.
After saw it play 2 years at Montreal, i can see : YOU WILL LOVE IT.

And it's a good improvement of Randy Robitaille

Kariya, Hartnell, Perreault, Vokoun.. Preds will definitly become one of my favorite team

I read somewhere that Rem Murray was invited to Detroit's camp. Can anyone confirm this?
