Perry Re-signs w/ Ducks

They will be fine cap-wise. This is the new NHL. Massive bucks for a handful of good players, fill the rest with scrubs. Like it or not, this also means superstars will become even LESS likely to hit the open market, and harder to trade because of their cap hits. I'm betting teams will be signing a lot more undrafted talent like Brunner in an attempt to get around this.

I agree and I think it's the teams who can get the most out of their bottom 6 at the right price who will succeed. Seems like most teams will have a capable top 6.

Good deal. I never thought he'd look good in red. Datsyuk needs someone to beat on every decade, or so, anyway. :boxing:

Holland must of low balled Perry. Holland fails again to sign someone way over what they are worth. To be honest I think it's all the fault of one which will not be named. He's done this and has ruined the league.

hillbillywingsfan, I am sorry that you feel the resigning of Corey Perry is my doing. You shoudl know that I was pressing for him to join the Pittsburgh Penguins, so he could play with and protect the Face of the League I called Ray Shero and Mario Lemieux 16 times in the past few days, to no avail.

Not surprising at all.

I think this signing speaks volumes for the credibility of "trade speculation". Just yesterday, a whole bunch of trade sites were talking about how Perry was "getting homesick" and wanted to be closer to Ontario. The next day he re-signs... It was probably a load of bull Krupp, like a lot of other "trade speculation".

That being said, I doubt anyone should get their hopes up about Bobby Ryan being moved. He's not going anywhere...

Based on Perry's own words, he did consider going UFA to either the Leafs or Wings for the very reason of being closer to home, so maybe that speculation was closer to home than you give credit for:

It's also nice to put to rest the speculation of us signing him like some have mentioned.

Including myself. :P
