Ottawa is a team to look at here. With Alfredsson on the brink of retirement, opens up a big hole for Perry. They have the money and cap space. There's the connection with Brian Murray, the guy who drafted him. You know he'd be very interested in getting his guy back. Marc Methot, who played on the London Knights with Perry and won the Memorial Cup with him. They're an Ontario team, Perry is an Ontario kid, it's close to home. They were pretty successful last season and look like a team on the rise. A core of Perry, Spezza, and Karlsson is something the team can definitely build around. Although I hate the idea, it just makes a lot of sense.
