The St. Louis Blues Can’t Afford To Lose David Perron

from Ben Frederickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

They say if you love something, let it go and see if it returns.

Two times David Perron has been let go by the Blues, once via trade (2013) and another due to the team leaving him unprotected in the expansion draft (2017). Two times, he’s returned. In fact, Perron has never signed a contract with a team not named the Blues. His previous experiences as a draft-eligible prospect or free agent have ended the same way. Signing a deal with the Blues.

Perron is true Blue. He’s a champion. He’s Playoff Perron. And he could be gone again after this postseason ends. Hopefully not. If there was any doubt about how much the Blues need him, this in-progress postseason should have settled it.

Where would the Blues be this postseason without Perron?

Entering Saturday’s Game 3 of this second-round series against Colorado, Perron was tied for fifth in the NHL in postseason points (11). His seven goals trailed only Jake Guentzel’s eight. Perron’s hat trick in the Blues’ first first-round game against Minnesota helped the Blues steal one on enemy ice. His two-goal game against the Wild in Game 4 of that series helped send Minnesota to the golf course. His two-goal game against Colorado in Game 2 of this series introduced the Avalanche to their first taste of defeat in this postseason.


Perron has been very good in the post season and he needs to be great today to lead the Blues to a much needed win.

Place your bet on Perron and more at Betway, who knows you just may be rewarded for doing so.
