Red Wings Sign Veteran Forward Perron


The Detroit Red Wings announced the signing of veteran forward David Perron on Wednesday.

I’ll be honest, this move surprised me.  That it’s a two-year deal surprised me even more.  Perron seems like the guy you sign late in the summer and flip to a contender looking for veteran depth at the trade deadline.

That said, he scored 27 goals last year – 11 of them on the power play – and 57 points total.  That should help Detroit’s anemic offense.

And he’s a pain to play against.  I rarely like bringing players like that to Detroit because I’ve gotten too used to hating them.  Chris Chelios was pretty much the lone exception to that rule.  But that doesn’t mean it’s not beneficial.
