question about perreault

where do you think perreault will land for next season
and if you where a gm in the national ligue would you offer him a contract?

if i was a gm of the montreal canadians i would sign him back
but for less then last year.

the guy wants to play in montreal.

so i would offer him a 2 year deal worth 2.25 millions/year
but ist a nhl player so he would refuse it
cause he as so many bills to pay

I would not give that much to Perreault. I like him, but I don't think he would deserve that to play on a 4th line.

I would not give that much either, if they resign him, I am not sure if he will play in every games... but they will tell him BEFORE he signs..
but I think he can get a day-to-day spot in a team less deep and be very useful.
the decision goes to him

If I was Perrault I'd run far away from Montreal, he didn't deserve the horrible treatment he got here.

I just don't understand post like these, no offense...hasn't Montreal had enough soft, one-dimensional players the last few years, I don't care about how great he is on faceoffs, or that he could put up 25 goals, I want the Habs to shake the "soft" image, and ridding themselves of players like Perreault goes a long way

Perreault's lucky he wasn't playing in the AHL by the end of Feburary when he had gone basically 9 weeks without scoring a goal. He flat out sucked in 03-04 aside from a March stretch with Koivu and Zednik and a good first round against Boston. The Habs got all they could use out of Perreault, it's time to move on.

I think Perreault is a better match for a non-playoff team as a second line center than in a defensive role with the Canadiens. He has a nice wristler and may still bring a few 20-25 goals seasons with the right playing time. But I doubt he will be back in Montreal considering his age, his salary and the depth at center the habs already have (Koivu, Ribeiro, Bonk and Begin)

to tell you the truth, I'd rather have Perreault playing left wing on the 2nd line with Ribs and Ryder than having Dagenais there. Perreault could take the faceoffs(since Ribs isn't that good in the circle) and then go to wing once the play starts

Yeah, real easy to score from up there with the media or on a 4th line. When he was put on the first line with Koivu he showed what he had and had a great streak going before being pulled yet again for no reason.

I'll rather give the spot to Hossa, Higgins or even Kostitsyn instead of signing Perreault.

I can agree with that, if they shine in training camp, then yes, definitely

Perrault is a good player and scorer but there really isn't any place for him on the Canadiens

A team who lacks scoring punch might (big might) be interested ... Carolina comes to mind, as does Boston (having lost a boat load of players this off-season).

Exactly, he needs out of montreal in a team where he can play top 6, it's the only place where he can be useful.

True, considering our only centre is Thornton. Nylander and Rolston are gone. Green is an UFA.

Given the right type of players to play with, Perreault would be a good second line center. The Bruins have these players in bergeron and lapointe. They could pick up the slack physically and defensively, while Perreault is allowed to play his game - offence.

If Perreault signs with Boston, Glen Healy's head will explode. Getting to talk about the 700 lbs line and Perreault's excellent faceoff ability on the same team? He'd be in heaven...

Anybody who watched the CBC Habs-Bruins series knows what I'm saying

I hope he signs with the Bruins, it would make the Habs job that much easier.

How so? We would have one of the best faceoff specialist in the league. I'm certain that he would not have first or second line time. Even thrid line can be a stretch because he is not a checker.

What good is winning the face-off when you lose the puck right away? Perreault doesn't have the strength to hold onto the puck in any area of the ice, and could never contain his man down low. He does have an excellent shot that is very accurate at hitting the top corner, but he needs someone to set him up. He's a very good PP guy, but outside from that I always felt he was in the wrong profession.

The CBC fired Healy this summer .

As for Perreault, I never had a problem with him, but I really don't want him back with the Habs. The only UFA the Habs should be targeting are first line impact wingers if Kovalev doesn't re-sign.

Boston could do worse than scooping up Perrault. B's fans are tired of losing draws in crunch time.
