Geek of the Week – David Perron in Pittsburgh

Going deep into the numbers – what to expect from Perron in Pittsburgh

On Friday, David Perron owners hit the lottery as he was shipped from the lowly Oilers to a high octane Penguins team. As always, Steve Laidlaw did a beautiful job of breaking down the fantasy impact of the trade. I pretty much agree with everything that he laid out on Perron but I always like to drill down a little deeper using Fantasy Hockey Geek to get an understanding of just how much a deal will affect the players' value past just the points, so I am making Perron the Geek of the Week. It should be noted that this analysis was done prior to Perron's first game with the Pens on Saturday.
