Perrault appreciation thread!

Guys ive been bashing this guy all season long. Saying he too slow, bad defensively, and so on. However his play of late (and i know it may be short term) deserves to be credited. He has really steped it up playing with Saku and Zednik. Also the fact the he NEVER complains, just makes it that much better.

I know he may cool down, but what if he continues to play like this into the playoffs and through it. If Perreault can continue to play the way he has been, i personally dont mind seeing him on the first line.

Anyways i just thought i would show some respect for the guy, because right now it is well deserved

I've been against Perreault this whole season as well but lately I have turned the corner on him. Regardless of whether he keeps this pace up or not he still deserves our respect and appreciation for what he's doing on the top line.

He really deserved this after not speaking out when playing a much lesser role this year.

Great thread idea.

Perreault is great depth, I think he skate faster lately and he got a good hockey sense as usual. He move his feet well and know how to score.

Perreault is a natural. He doesn't need too many chances to put it in the net. This guy will end another season with 20 goals (or close) while not playing much. The fact he never complain makes him a good team player.

Perreault has really proven to be a team player, and you can never have enough team players heading into the playoffs.

I appreciate Perrault's hair.

Not enough guys have mullets nowadays. I don't understand how a guy can have short hair and call himself a hockey player. Perrault sets a good example for the team in this regard and will be a great influence on the young kids coming up who have no idea what hockey hair should look like.

Never was a huge Perreult fan but latly has stepped it up and i'm glad they finally found a spot for him, because he does have some good offencive instincts that weren't being used, but even still I think next season he'll be with another team, I dought BG will re-sign him this summer.

He's a god guy. I've always liked Yannic. There are few men in the NHL more dangerous from the slot area.

Perreault is what I'd label a "transitional" center. He's good for a rebuilding team or a team that's struggling for offense—in 2002, with Saku down, we would have been toast if not for Perreault, so I appreciate him for that—but a team looking to contend needs more from their top-two pivots. As a winger, he's a little too soft, but he complements two hard-working linemates well. That's why he's doing well now. However, if Zednik were to slip again, that line would be hurting.

As long as he keeps scoring, I'll keep appreciating.

Here are some great quotes from Sunday's Gazette on this very topic:

"You have to give Richard Zednik a lot of the credit," said Perreault, who has four goals and four assists in the nine games since Bulis sprained his knee. "He made a great play moving the puck up the boards and I just went to the net. He made a great pass and I had time to lift the puck over (Eddie) Belfour's shoulder."

"We're two skilled guys and when you throw in a power forward like Richard, it opens up a lot of space for us," he said.

"I'm starting to like playing on the wing and I still get to take some faceoffs," he noted. "Saku has been doing a good job with the faceoffs, but if he's having trouble or he needs a break, he knows I'm there."

Koivu said he is "pleasantly surprised" by Perreault's play.

"He's gone through some tough times this season and I respect the way he's handled things."


During his recent success, he finds time to credit his teammates instead of on himself. To me, this shows that he is first and foremost a team player, and you have to respect that IMO!! CJ has also shown confidence in him in not moving him off this line, even when Kovy was picked up. That is another great endorsement in how well Yanic is working out there these days.

Lets all jump on the bandwagon!!!


Sooner he's gone, the better. I'll give him points for his great attitude though.

I love Yannick the Sniper. It looks so easy to him to score. I just hate rest of his game. Just beore he had his helper on Zednik's goal, he was invisible.

He's a good sniper, a good team player and a great faceoff guy, that's it.

His defensive play isn't enough to play loads of minutes [PK or against opponent's best players] and the more I think of it, the more I feel he's lazy. why wasn't he skating that hard before?

He's not that bad a hockey player, but clearly not the type I'd want on my team if we'd be aiming for the cup. He and Dagenais shouldn't be on contenders as they aren't well-rounded enough, IMO. Not dominant enough for the first two lines, not checkers or aggressive so they don't fit on the 3rd/4th either. They could fare well as PP specialist but that'd be taking away...

All in all, he's ok on our team now, but I hope he won't be part of the team when we'll be looking to make some serious damage.

Well if it comes down to him or *that* fool playing on the top two lines, than Nomore Panicking Yanicking is the man.
