    Just linking to the Trade Board Thread with the various sources confirming.

    Apparently for a 4th plus Mitchell. Can't help but like it.

    Traded for a 2014 4th round pick and John Mitchell. So basically we gave up nothing for a 0.5 PPG guy. But where are we going to use him? Hardly a 4th liner...

    Love this move. We have a logjam up front, but what I've seen from him, he's a good one.

    Sounds like Murray was trying to buy low. The Caps needed to move a player, right?

    Could mean Bonino wasn't impressing and he gets a chance at the 2nd C slot?

    I think he can play both wing and centre. I wonder if one of the wingers will be out for longer than expected or if he's gonna play C.

    I like it, if only purely in terms of value. Perrault has proven that he can produce at this level to some degree and Boudreau knows him very well. He didn't fit with Oates, so as it looked like they might even have to waive him, the Ducks didn't feel like taking their chances with someone else claiming him before them, which I think would have happened. It's a nice little addition at the lowest of risks, really.

    the deal itself isnt bad...im starting to think BM has a forward hording issue though...seems like the logical pick up would have been on D

    Would have rather seen us target a guy like Konopka for a similar price.

    We are a semi-slow team and he is trying to address that, the same reason Etem will be on the roster and not in the AHL. (as I have said before)

    Not sure why we wouldn't have tried signing Grabo instead (When he was available) if we were looking to acquire someone for the C position.

    Just say no mas!

    I guess theres a phone call late at night, "BM. You want this guy? Cheap. Been calling around all evening. No one is picking up."

    BM, "I really dont need him, but i guess we can send you something and i can figure out the roster later."

    Looks like the youngsters are going to be in the AHL.

    Better than Staubitz on opening night roster.

    According to Caps fans, this guy isn't exactly a speedster.

    I disagree. Konopka's only attractive asset is his ability to win draws, but he negatively makes up for it by being on the ice after having won 6/10 draws. He's just not a good player, on either side of the puck. Perrault is far more attractive than that.

    the interesting thing is i believe perreault can play LW correct??
    im still assuming this means holland/rakell are both in the minors to start. and bonino/perreault might compete for that 2C spot. although i'd guess that bonino gets first crack at it

    although this certainly isn't getting us any bigger in size. we already wilt under heavy forecheck, perreault is also a small guy that can get pushed around, especially in our division

    Well considering our coach was his old coach I think he knows more than some fans on this forum.

    "Adding a young, quality center to the mix makes us that much deeper. I thought we needed some additional speed and scoring, and he is a feisty competitor."

    Who says we didn't try? Also, Perreault comes at a fraction of the price in terms of salary.

    Yeah, to me the key there is "scoring" because I doubt the difference in speed is going to be very significant.

    Uh... and that was Murray who said that, not Boudreau.

    I realize Perrault is far more talented, but I think Konopka is a better fit as a 4C/spare forward. Can help in the face-off department as you mentioned, and adds some grit. I'm worried that this lineup doesn't have enough push-back.

    If we start Etem in the AHL our team is top 5 slowest in the league (forward wise) would you agree? Cogs has speed but everyone else is average.

    No, I wouldn't agree with that.

    And I think you're exaggerating the problem. Once our blue line gets some games under their belt, and solidifies, I think you'll see a faster team. That's where speed starts.

    Can't say I know anything about Perreault. Seems to have really good numbers for what we gave up. But it gets back to the too many bodies at forward thing.

    He does seem like a good piece if they were to try to make the 4th line a scoring line.
