I don't see us trading Perrault!!

considering in the begining only reason he was considered good trade bait was because he could help other teams out in Faceoff department, but from looks of things we might end up needing him more considering he's free agent next year and we won't get any big return for him anyways, and he might even endup signing for one more year, and we get compensation pick anyways if he signs with another team, and knowing we can't actually improve by trading him, and considering most of his contract will be paid by trading deadline why not just keep him, or if we were to trade him it will be for another good Centre with good size with maybe BG adding 3rd pick we got from SJ to sweeten the pot for another team, I'm really interested in Arnott if we can get him out of Dallas BG will look like genius and knowing Dallas Defence is somewhat weak after Sydor and Hatcher left maybe we could add Rivet to the deal, to make the deal bigger.

I agree
We need him as much as any other team specially that Saku is injury prone and he's our only faceoff specialist.

Dallas won't trade Arnott for 2 guys with almost negative value and a 3rd.

Thats the best deal I can think of that is plausible for BG considering Rivet has been Descent fourth defencemen for many years and Perrault could still help out, but they are expandable for us with BG's main priority going for Centre position, and they have some value and don't forget we take Arnott $5 M contract as well, and Dallas receives Draft pick as well, with CBA expiring next year who knows what might happend but for me this is the only deal that I would consider making, we can't trade any prospects at this time and moment.

I think it depends if BG is going to bring in another centre.

If he gets another centre that can step right into the lineup, Perrault will be expendable and we might as well ditch him for whatever we can get.

But with the way things stand now, I think we have to keep him around. Our depth at centre is poor. Sure we have some youngsters that can step in and play on the 4th line, but none that can play on the top 3 lines for a playoff run.

If Juneau, Koivu or Ribs gets hurt down the stretch we'll be glad we have Perrault to step in.

This guy is untradable, if he has just a little trade value he would be already gone!

I personnally wish another buy out, this is the only solution...

I would prefer Patrick Traverse centering any line instead Perreault!
I wouldn't buy him out...He's a free agent after this year.. Let's not spend cash for nothing. I agree with the fact that Perreault ain't helping the team alot but I wouldn't take Traverse over him

Perreault is excellent on faceoff, has a good shot and... ehhh... that's it! He's slow, soft and somewhat lazy. He could help alot of teams, but those should have bigger players around him to make some space, cause he won't be able by himself. Also, we have alot of quality prospects waiting to graduate, and one in particular that is impressing me, Plekanec.

If Koivu get hurt, don't panic, someone in the minors can take his place or Gainey can trade for someone. Perreault is expendable, anyway he's often in the pressbox. And I want him to get traded so that freaks like Pedneault, Norman Flynn or Alain Chantelois will stop complaining he doesn't get enough respect. They're so biased toward Quebec players it's pathetic, especially when it's at the detriment (sp?) of other players, like Bulis... Pedneault should get his ass kicked! Bulis is always working the hell out of him, but damn they always just see his flaws! While Perreault and his atrocious play gets rewards... aaahhh breathing...
