Early this morning, Mike Vogel broke the news that the Caps reassigned forwards Jay Beagle, Andrew Gordon and Mathieu Perreault to AHL Hershey. Then during Media Day, Bruce Boudreau stated that he thought Marcus Johansson had more defensive upside than Perreault to try and explain why the French-Canadian was sent down over the Swede. I am far from a Perreault supporter, so you know this is coming from the numbers heart.
Looking at the pre-season stats of MJ90 and MP85, do they really show MJ90 is better defensively?
