As heart breaking as this season has been so far I think David Perron deserves his own thread. The guy is a total beast. I give major props to Mac T for aquiring this guy. I was torn on what jersey to get and I am leaning towards a Perron one. I am so glad I took this guy late in my fantasy pool. Exactly what this teams needs.

And to think he left the Blues in part because he was too soft there... no wonder the Oilers have a reputation for being like warm butter.

Really? I don't personally recall hearing that, he has always been a difficult player to play against. He battled the concussion issue for some time though, which was the only worry I heard people were having about him.

I thought it was cap hit signing their core players. They took Paajarvi mainly because his cheap contract.

I think for Perron his talent has always been there but playing under an extremely defensive minded coach like Hitch handcuffed him. Hitch is a great coach but his defensive schemes always come first and for a posession guy like Perron he wasnt a fit and the Blues also needed to clear cap space as well. But this one has got to be up there with some of the other major fleece jobs in the NHL.

We are a total of 22 games into this trade. It looks very good so far, but lets not get carried away here... it's way too early to go making claims like that.

I do get slightly concerned that a guy that was deemed expendable by the Blues comes in and is immediately our MVP at the quarter-point of the season. Is that a measuring stick of just how far we are from competing in the West with teams like St. Louis, that their castoffs become our best players? I don't think it's that bad, but still, it's a thought I have trouble shaking, because he wasn't part of the plans in St. Louis at all.

Shake that thought. I understand what you mean, keep in mind though the only reason he was expendable is because St. Louis needed the caproom to sign Pietrangelo & Shattenkirk who both came off their ELC's, meaning, big pay raises.
Chris Stewart also needed to be resigned.

Also Perron never produced in St. Louis like he has so far this year so he deserves credit for playing the best hockey of his career too.

What I mean by this is I don't think Perron was a mere "castoff" there.

The Oilers gave up a young and still-developing Paajarvi and a 2nd rounder for Perron, so time will tell how this pans out. But for the short-term the Oilers are ahead.

But somehow, I don't think we're going to see in MPS a repeat of Adam Graves (here -> NYR), Neely (Canucks -> Bruins) or LeClair (Habs -> Philly).

IIRC Perron didn't really get along with his fellow Blues nor with Hitch. And in many sports organizations, team chemisty is always an important consideration. The Oilers replaced a guy who was in and out of the lineup and in the minors with someone who seems to have clicked with the others.

I thought I had edited that part for this year. One of the major fleece jobs this year. Sorry about that.

I always have liked Perron. I thought he gave us a lot of grief whenever we played St Louis the last few years. As for Hitch. I have known this guy since he coached Alberta Chain in Sherwood Park in the Midget AAA league 35 years ago or what have you. He is a very good coach but his ability to handle professional players for more than a few years leaves something wanting. Players seem to chaff under him longer term. We will see if they don't all snap their crayons in St Louis and Hitch is gone in another year. Its too early to say who won the trade but we needed a guy like that. Actually 3 more guys like that. Now we just need a few good moves like that on D. I like how Ferrence has been stepping up the grit factor lately. Not the biggest guy but he is leading by example now.

The trade was definitely cap related. The big name they needed to sign was Pieterangelo but there were others, too.

I've noticed on twitter that Perron and Ference seem to hang out together a lot.
Cultural divide in the locker room?

To be honest, it's probably a maturity thing. Perron doesn't seem to be on the same level as the rest of the kids.

On Oil Change, Ference told a kid that he and Perron play Age of Empires together.

Doesn't mean there's a divide in the room, but I think it's safe to say the two get along well. That's a good thing.

That's so true it kind of hurts. You are right, I do need to focus my Oilers related belligerence on those who really deserve it.
