Cost For A Top Rental Player

Craig Custance of ESPN ranks the Top 20 Rental Players in a column which is for ESN Insiders, so I will give you a few names.

A rental is defined as any player with an expiring contract after this season who can become an unrestricted free agent (salaries per CapGeek.com). Not all of these players will be dealt between now and the deadline but their teams will no doubt have a conversation about their future, especially if contract talks stall.

F Corey Perry, Ducks Contract: $5.3 million

Reasonable asking price: This is your Grade A premium rental. Murray can get a bigger return if he allows interested teams to make a call to Perry's agent to talk about a possible extension but there's risk in that as well if that conversation doesn't go far. Either way, acquiring Perry will cost an NHL roster player, first-round pick and good prospect.

F David Clarkson, Devils Contract: $2.7 million

Reasonable asking price: First-round pick and a prospect. "You only try to do that if you think you can re-sign him," said one source.

Come to Detroit, Corey.  All will be forgiven.

Coffey, Primeau, first-rounder.

And the assurance you will never again be on the receiving end of “the fists of Pav”.

I have said this before. I have had an unnatural desire to acquire Corey Perry for some time now. At least for a couple of seasons. I also do not give a flying whatever any one thinks.

Lets Go Red Wings!!!!!

Perry in a heartbeat.  We have an abundance of little guys who can skate and deke and may get off a shot or two before getting planted on their ass.  A big guy who can put the puck in the net is what is needed.  Shades of “14”, like Herm said.

Fillpula, White and one of Jurco, Sheahan, Jarnkrok. 

They may want more than that, maybe even Gus. Also add the proviso that a long term deal will be worked out. Corey Perry is 27 years old and in his prime. He’s big, durable and has a career of 40-goal seasons ahead of him. The Ducks really were in love with Flip back when Carlyle was the coach, so maybe that opinion went further up the organizational ladder.

Yeah, all will be forgiven.

I"d rather have Baldy Flatscalp before an own-goal scoring douchebag.

Um, yes please. We could send back another NHL-ready top 6’er in Abby. Why wouldn’t Anaheim make that deal??

I have thought that video was more an indictment of Ryan Whitney (missed open net on the forehand) than Perry, but let’s agree to disagree.

Nobody’s better than Baldy Flatscalp at turning Joe Whorton into a yellow-backed, prissy little diva.

Love it! We just need to somehow get Perry or Gaborik on a line with Pasha. Hmmm…maybe trade Uncle Mike and a second?

Gaborik is the Randy Moss of the NHL.  Tremendously talented, but “I will play when I want to play, Homie”.

A bit more ‘spensive than Perry, too?  I am guessing.

With the realignment Perry to the Wings is a totally viable option.
