From what I had been hearing, the Blues were hesitant with a long-term due to concussion history.

But the price looks good for them and if Perron blossoms, well, he may be thinking he should have gone short-term.

I’m still shocked by Crosby’s deal, with no insurance. I don’t see his career lasting past Christmas. Maybe Christmas 2014, but still. A lot to bite off if things go south.
