Perron trade talk (update)

7/11/2013

UPDATE: According to ESPN Insider Craig Custance (below), the trade sending former St. Louis Blues forward David Perron to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for forward Magnus Paajarvi and a 2014 second-round draft pick suits both clubs well. The Oilers get a dynamic, top-six forward and the Blues get a young player with potential plus are able to move Perron's $3.8 million average annual salary. A big deal for a team on a budget, when a couple of significant restricted free agents still need to be re-signed.
