Departure from St. Louis: David Perron is still in shock

St. Louis Blues decided not to offer David Perron a new contract at the end of last season. So he decided to test the free agent market, teaming up with the Detroit Red Wings. Although he’s found a new team, David Byron is still in shock that he’s no longer with the Blues, and still in shock that they don’t want him anymore.

A few days after announcing his signature with Wings, David Perron accepted an interview with Jeremy Rutherford of the athlete.

The big surprise for Peron is that even after 11 seasons with the Blues, it’s all over suddenly.

“I’m still a little shocked that it didn’t work, the way the years have gone by. I think if you saw my performance going down or something like, ‘Maybe there’s something in here.’ It’s still raw to me. I had to let go. The dust settles and I think I still have to let that happen.” — David Byron via Jeremy Rutherford the athlete

What shocks Peron even more is that the Blues have made no real effort to keep it, even after a good season and so many other outstanding players in the blue and yellow jersey.

“They were talking, but it was just to talk. It was never serious from what I heard from my side. We were just hoping we’d have something to think about. I imagine in contractual situations like this, you can talk for a while and eventually there’s a show and then it’s over after a minute.” But it’s not like there’s anything to get me excited about.” — David Byron via Jeremy Rutherford the athlete

The Blues made several acquisitions on the first day of the free agent market and quickly, there was not a penny left for Byron. It was then that Quebec realized that this was really the end.

Peron reportedly received a two-year offer of $4 million a year last season, but he politely declined because he wanted to stay in St. Louis longer. And $4 million a year for him was a slight insult in hindsight, especially after a 13-point streak in 12 playoffs, including a streak against Avalanche.

That’s without forgetting his regular season stats with 27 goals and 30 assists for 57 points in 67 games. Peron has talent, but the Blues no longer want him. The good news is that the Red Wings are very happy to have an offensive player of his caliber on their roster for a fairly low salary ($4.75 million) considering the amount of points he can produce.

David Perron is still trying to laugh at the situation. He found it very strange to buy a Red Wings hat for his son, who started his career as a competitor for the same team.
