Would Yanic Perreault clear waivers?

Althoug he has more goals tha any other Habs forward and a reknown face-off specialst, he is in Claude Julein dog house. Does he have any trade value?

I wouldn't be surprised to see Pierre Dagenais soon in Habs line-up.

Some people are making hard around here for me not to go off on rants!!!!

Would MArtin Straka clear waivers, now Would Yannik Perrault----Geez


To be nice--YP is a very good face off man and has a contract that can be played with--the finacially bankrupt Pens would even nabbed him

isn't his salary 2.8 M? or do I have that wrong??

I'm not saying he wouldn't be claimed by SOMEONE but alot of teams would pass at that price. Calgary would (just as one example)

I might be wrong, but I think he'd clear at this point.

IMO, 80% of the benefit of being a great face-off guy is wasted if you're so poor in your own zone that you're not out there taking key defensive zone face-off's.

While he can put points on the board, he's VERY, VERY streaky.

He reminds me a little of Donald Audette. Good enough to put points on the board if given a lot of icetime, but not good enough to deserve the icetime on a good team.

Don't get angry so fast. I was just asking. So most people up to now think he would be picked up. Perreault has played as best as he can since the start of the season and yet is an healthy scratch.

He will not get better, how come there's no offer for him. Is Bob Gainey waiting for the trade deadline? I believe had Gainey receiver any good offer he would already be gone.

Well put. I agree. This guy would be on no team of mine if I were a serious contender.

Marginal teams may pick him up but at close to $3 mil near the impending CBA stuff doesnt help his chances. I think teams would trade for him BEFORE they would pick him off waivers!! Why? So montreal accepts some smaller amount of junk salary in exchange.

I believe Atlanta would take him off waivers if he made it that far. DW pursued him in the past and if he could get him off of waivers I think it is highly probable that he would.

I'd think DW would trade for him too if he were offered him. Don't know what kind of return could be had since this is all hypothetical, but I would think quite a few teams would have interest in him.

I agree this is becoming ridiculous. He obviously doesn't fit in Montreal anymore yet he's still there taking a spot from a youngster (Hossa mainly). Gainey should just put him on waivers already if nobody has shown interest for a trade.

I think he would be claimed but I agree with Looooob when he says that he would be passed by allot of teams. In fact, it wouldn't suprise me if he cleared waivers and Gainer was forced to make a "future considerations" deal that ate a little of his salary.

Enless a player has a contract like Cujo's---if he is any good he will not get through waivers

Injuries are starting to stack up and when then teams that have players they want to move---deal them for something--rather then nothing. Straka is an interesting case--he is a 20 to 30 goal man when healthy and is a legit scoring threat. With Armageddon coming--come feb/march, is a team desides that there will be no hockey next year--they may gift rap a pick and a good prospect for Straka

As for YP---because of his talent he would get claimed in aheart beat

Well--here is a question

Would Jagr clear waivers? Lindros? Forsberg? If it is all about teams scared of contracts--these guys would clear waivers

Different status mate. YP is nowhere near the talent level of a Jagr or a Forsberg. It is an interesting theory wether or not Jagr would based on his large salary but, other than that, it is apples and oranges.

Forsberg, if he would agree to a long term contract with your team would be totally worth grabbing as he is one of a kind and possible the best in the world. One of the few that might be worth his salary. Jagr used to be that guy, not at 11 mill but maybe. I just think that Forsberg shouldn't be on the list. Remove him and I would say that they prolly would clear them.

The CBA doesn't matter because Yanic is in the last year of his contract. UFA in July. Definitly picked up and I think tradable but for a minimal value (3rd or 4th rd pick)

Perreault would not clear waivers. Plain and Simple. I don't care how streaky he is, or about his 2.8 mill contract, he is a guy good teams look to pick up. He is one of the top 3 or 4 if not THE best faceoff guy in the league, he'll still be good for a good 15-20 goals as a 3rd liner.

That's the problem GKJ, unless your 3rd line is an offensive minded one and you don't have a checking line per se, Perreault doesn't fit in on a 3rd line because of his defensive shortcomings.

Last year of contract so money isnt a big problem. At this point, a maximum of 2 millions are peft on Perreault contract. He would be pick.

Best faceoff man in the league. Any team looking for a second line center who can scores somes would want him. Give him wingers who are more passers than scorers and you got what you want: 20 goals for the remaining of the season.

Or even on a 3rd line on teams who are looking for offense on 3rd line and no def. While he's not as bad as he was on def, he cant be on a defensive mind line. That's why he's not in Montreal plans anymore, Koivu and Ribeiro are better passers than him and that's what we need at center right now.

He would be picked before someone get the time to post he's on waivers here... (of course, a bit of an exageration)

I still don't agree that he'd get picked up.

What team is looking for a average offensively, weak defensively scoring line center? He's not good enough defensively to put him on a line that should shut someone down.

A play-off team shouldn't touch him with a 10 foot (3 meter) pole, and he wouldn't be worth enough on a bad team to make it worth the $ IMO.

That is a tough question but I would be willing to bet a team like Atlanta would be all over Perreault if he was waved.. IMO.

I think he'd get taken. He is a good player, will score close to 30, and dominate on the draw. He also doesn't make a gross amount of money. You can say he is overpaid, but remember 1/4 of that has been paid already, and any team taking him would be off the hook after the season.
