Anyone Want Corey Perry?

via TSN,

The Anaheim Ducks are in the process of finalizing paperwork to buy out Corey Perrythis morning, according to TSN Senior Hockey Reporter Frank Seravalli.

Perry is not expected to be placed on waivers due his no-movement clause. He has two years left on his deal with a cap hit of $8.6 million.

Last season, Perry had just 10 points in 31 games played with the Ducks last season. He is coming off meniscus and MCL injuries and missed the first five months of the season after knee injury. 

He was drafted by the Ducks in the first round (28th overall) of the 2003 NHL Draft. Perry won the Stanley Cup with Anaheim in 2007, and won the Hart and Rocket Richard trophies in 2011.

The Ducks today have bought out the contract of right wing Corey Perry.

Perry, 34 (5/16/85), won a Stanley Cup, Olympic gold medal, World Championship, World Cup, Memorial Cup and World Junior title. Only Perry and Scott Niedermayer have accomplished this feat in hockey history. Perry is the only Hart Memorial Trophy winner in franchise history, becoming only the third player on the West Coast to win the award (Wayne Gretzky and Joe Thornton). Perry is also one of eight players in hockey history to win a Stanley Cup, Gold Medal and Hart Trophy, joining Mario Lemieux, Sidney Crosby, Dominik Hasek, Peter Forsberg, Jaromir Jagr, Chris Pronger and Joe Sakic. In addition, he is one of 11 Canadian skaters and 29 players all-time in the Triple Gold Club (Stanley Cup, Olympic gold medal, World Championship gold medal).

A two-time NHL First Team All-Star and four-time All Star, Perry and Chicago's Patrick Kane are the only two right wings with two NHL First Team honors since 2010-11. The only other players with multiple First Team honors since 2010-11 are Crosby (3), Connor McDavid (2), Alex Ovechkin (2) and Jamie Benn (2). The Peterborough, Ontario native holds several all-time franchise records, including most games played (988) and penalty minutes (1,110). He also ranks second in franchise goals (372) and game-winning goals (64), and third in points (776), assists (404) and power-play goals (103). Selected by Anaheim in the first round in the 2003 NHL Draft, Perry also owns a postseason franchise record for overtime goals (4).

Pierre LeBrun tweet,

Ducks only had 4-6 teams to work with trade-wise as per Perry’s list - he had a full no-move. Anaheim couldn’t find a trade partner so buyout it is.

Didn’t realize he was so injured last year, wonder if there’s anything left in the thank.  Could be a good fit if short term and cheap on some cup competitors 3rd line, like a Toronto or Winnepeg.  He’s fits the mold of a prickish ahole type character you’d see in Boston for sure.

Such is the reality of the power forward.  When they fall off, they fall off fast.  Long terms commitments don’t make a lot of sense. once they hit around mid-20’s…

I just texted that very sentiment to a friend who is an Oilers fan.

Too bad they couldn’t trade for him AND one of Anaheim’s young dmen as a package deal.  I can’t stand Perry but there could have been some upside to a deal like that.

With all of his injuries, I’m surprised they couldn’t come up with some sort of rationalization for putting him on LTIR. But since that didn’t happen, I’d like to see him put into a cage with Marchand so we can watch them cheap-shot each other into oblivion. I think people would pay good money to see that. grin
