Do we keep Perreault for next year ?

Do we sign him this summer, or let him walk ?

it all depends what he does when it really counts...the playoffs. He's having good chemistry now with Sax and Z. I'm like you guys, I can't wait to see Perez and Higgins with the big club but will they be ready?

I just hope we are able to keep Kovalev in hab land.
as for Perreault, he's a nice guy and all but it all depends

he gets big contract from another team and we get high compensation.

Of course no. Zhogin and Higgins will be much better in no time.

I'm really happy for Perreault if he can redeem his season though.

he would have to take a drastic cut in pay...plus I don't think we want to give him 1st line minutes....so were else do you play him, Langdon would get points playing with Saks & Zed

No and we do keep Kovalev. He was incredible tonight.

He opens a lotta space out there for Riberio and Ryder.

His wrist shot is 2nd to none

I'd resign him in a second although he might not play all games. Perreault is the ultimate offensive depth player: he is at his best after he misses a lot of games, doesn't seem to mind much, has top end finishing skills, top faceoff guy in the league. If he's willing to sit in the pressbox and take his paycheck then I have no problem because he's the type of player that becomes useful when a top line player gets injured (ie 2 years ago when we lost Saku and now when we lost Bulis).

Good point. But 3 M for that a guy like that is way too much.

hmmm I thought we were the habs not the Rangers...Bringing in big name players through free agency seems to be destined for failure. Except for Guerin...because he rocks.

I like the game and effort that Yanic has brought to the Saks line since Bulis' injury; however, he still is a one dimensional guy that is making a whack of dough. Gainey can do better with that money and a whole league of UFA's to scoop from. Moving Yanic also makes room for one of the younger guys to move up.

It will be interesting to see which forwards sit once Bulis and Sunny are back from injury. Methinks Yanic still gets the nod until he falters. That just means Dags is falling another step down the depth chart these days once the others return from their injuries.

Alfredsson will resign with the sens. I'd put down good money on that. He wants to win a cup in Ottawa. He's a captain there, well respected. I don't see why he would leave.

No we dont need him. He's still slow and soft. Altough i must admit that i am a "Yanic Hater", he does know how to put the puck in the net. He's a better version of Dagenais.

Is this thread a joke?

How Koivu and Zednik go Perreault goes!

Perrreault has proved all his carrrer along that he is a irregular player... Temporary filler, no more!

It's without any difficulty that Perezhogin, Hossa or Higgins will replace him next year!

How bout we wait and see how Perreault does in the last 10 games. And then watch the playoffs. And cheer when he scores. And complain when he's afraid of the corners. And then, when the summer comes, decide on his fate after we have had time to evaluate him.

Exact same thing goes for Special K. Sure he played OK tonight... but that 3 GP and 0 points. Not so special. So if he keeps this up, I wouldn't re-sign him at 5M$+ since we pay him to produce.

What do we do with Yanic Perrault?

This guy has been on fire lately and it looks like he's not going to cool down in the near future.

The first line has been going great, so when the season ends what do we do with yanic perrault?

Do we sign him or do we let him go?

Post your thoughts!

I don't think there is any question...BYE BYE. And I don't even think he has played that good lately. He has scored a couple of goals but that's it. Watching the game last night, I noticed that when Zednik and Koivu turn it up a notch he can't keep up. I for one and all for Bulis taking his spot with Koivu and Zednik!!

Perrault is a sniper, I don't care what people say, that guy can target a hole. He also is offensive minded, put him with players that are also offensively minded and he will have success. Now, we could find players with much more talent for our first line(if we do, obviously Perrault is out), but he can still do well.

I agree that when Koivu and Zednik turn it up, Perrault can't really keep up with them, but he still does a good job, I don't want Bulis there that's for sure.

There's a thread on this already, but...

I think Perrault is gone unless he takes a big decrease in pay.

They wont offer him anything, he doesnt fit, next year both perezhogin and higgins are going to challenge for top 6 spots...both have the potential to be better then Perreault on the wing
