eep in the playoffs, Perron said. Theres not many better opportunities to go to. Entering Fridays games, the Penguins (23-9-5) were just one point behind first-place Tampa Bay in the Eastern Conference. The Oilers are facing questions about the future despite a young core that includes Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle and Nugent-Hopkins. Perron said he was happy to be going to a contender but the competitive forward also said its difficult leaving, even amid the losing. Its always hard leaving a place when youre emotionally involved no matter how tough the situation was here, Perron said. Even if the Oilers are struggling right now, theyll find a way out eventually and theyll be a top team in the league. Looks like I wont be a part of it. Later Friday, the Oilers assigned forward Steve Pinizzotto to Oklahoma City and took forward Benoit Pouliot off the injured reserve list. Nelson said Pouliot coming back and Perron going out wasnt a seamless transition but would help ease the dropoff.
