Frankly 1 of two things will happen:

(1) He'll play well under Torts and we keep him until next year and then we reevaluate with Perry being a UFA as well.
(2) He'll be horrid. In that case, he doesn't play and we trade him mid-season to a team that wants to take a chance on him at a partial salary. Or we waive him (remember it would be a 1 year deal).
The guy gets a bad rep but I just looked at his stats and they're really good. He would have most likely had 3 40 goal seasons if not for injuries and 2 80 point season, (3 would be a long shot but doable). He had a bad year though, but so did everyone. Now I do think that team inflates his stats and stats aren't everything, but IMO we could do worse and he catches unfair flack.
