    I wouldn't overpay but a top 6 winger that's french helps the team. Some GM will offer him an insane contract from this season's production and regret it the following season.

    3 years @ 3.85 million

    Make an offer? Sure. But overpaying for a winger having a career year at 29 is not something the Habs can afford to do.

    Missed that boat... Should have been brought in last year. Now he'd be a "buy high" bet, not one I'd make at this time.

    No thanks. He would be a complete failure here.

    Vegas is one of the most bizarre cases of players in their physical prime with chips on their shoulders in a no-pressure environment, all topped with a great players coach and good goaltending. Aside from some young guys like Theodore or Tuch I just wouldn't bet on any player repeating or building on what they've done. Not even Marchessault nor especially Karlsson.

    Except that Briere was 36, Perron is 29.

    Not all cases of signing French Quebecers are the same. In this case, you do it if it's using that he's from here as a way to get him here, as opposed to overpaying (in trade or cap hit) to bring a player here because he's from here.

    I would want to increase out level of assets, whether through the draft or UFA market, regardless of position going forward.

    But he probably doesn't want to come here, to this mess, anymore anyways.

    But, can he play Center? (Ideally he's a winger)
    But, does he have the right Attitude?
    But, does he play with régulalluité?
    But, does he bring enough CHaracter?

    Bergevin might wet himself by thinking of a line made of Drouin - Danault - Perron

    Eh, Miller, Schmidt, Marchessault and Smith are exceptions in my mind. They've always had amazing underlying numbers (especially Marchessault). Smith was one of the few top guys not playing for a payday either. Neal has always been strong too, he's 30 though. Maybe they don't have the same success when there's real pressure, but those 4 were classic examples of really good players that were getting underplayed and undervalued by old-school thinking. Once they joined a team that had to play them, they flourished.

    I fully expect to overpay to get him here just like we had to for Briere and I fully expect to pay a premium for an anomaly contract year, Perron is lucky to put up 45 pts in Montreal and that's if he stays healthy with is about a 10% chance. If MB wastes any time or money this offseason on anyone who can't play Top 4 LHD or Top 6 C he should be terminated on the spot

    We should have over payed for Radulov and if we have the opportunity to overpay for Tavares we do it. But we won't. 29 year old Perron definitely isn't someone you overpay for.

    But, no UFA center is signing here. Sorry.

    And, to get a LHD we'll probably have to trade 1 or 2 of our wingers.

    100% agree we should've signed Rads and would be up for signing JT if we can, I just think Perron will use Montreal as leverage to drive up his price. I'm ok with tanking for another couple of years and getting our LHD/Cs through the draft rather than a quick fix that keeps us half pregnant again

    David Perron, especially at 31 years of age, isn't going to get you a top 6 center any more than Max Pacioretty is going to get you one. If you expect to get a top 6 center in return for a winger the name of that winger had better be Ovechkin or all you'll be getting is a bottom 6 pivot or a prospect.

    I'm pretty sure we ask this every time he is available. It was a no when he was like 24 and it's a no now.

    Unless Perron is tracking for like 80pts and we signed him to a 1-year deal, I don't see how he can possibly be flipped at the TDL. If you're serious about signing him, he's going to want money and term. The whole thing about rentals at the TDL, for contenders who are typically at the cap, they go for players who they don't need to commit past the upcoming playoff round or maybe two at most. Nobody is going to want Perron for 5 more years at a likely $6m per.

    Anyhow, my answer is no. While I am at it, my answer is no to:

    1. Perron
    2. Statsny
    3. Neal
    4. Nash

    One thing this team needs is more RH shooters. We are heavy on LH forwards. I agree wing is not a priority and I wouldn't offer big term or dollars to Perron but if Pacioretty moves, and maybe another winger moves, adding a RH shooter, especially one who can play his off wing would fill a need.

    Ideally, the team would add a RH top 6 C and a RH top 6 LW. We are heavy on LH forwards and that limits how our PPs run.

    Where's the ANY key?
    Home Page:
    After the season Perron just had, there is no way Montreal should make him an offer.

    He will be looking at 4 year 20+ million dollar deals, any Habs offer would not even be close to that.

    I guess if he was dead set on playing for the habs and was willing to sign some sorta 3-4 year, 12-16 millon dollar deal, I think it would be a smart move by the habs..but that aint happening.
