"If Perry goes on the market, UFA or not, the bidding would be way out of the Pens range." This was your initial comment. Pittsburgh has the $$$. If Pittsburgh doesn't, neither do many other teams because they are up at the cap, or many won't spend it. You made it out to be a bidding war.

The second part is an opinion of yours and nothing else - you don't see him ending up in Pittsburgh anyway and that is fine. But don't be a fool to think Pittsburgh doesn't have the $$$ which you are making it out to be.
Let me pull you out of your fantasy land for a minute, if possible:

Which option do you thnk is realistic:

A. Shero will be one of the highest bidders for Perry's services?

B. Perry takes a discount to come play with Crosby?

A is obviously never going to happen. If you think Shero will be in the top three bidders, go back to sleep.

B is the only slim chance there is.

Now feel free to list all of the big name FAs who took discounts to play with Crosby/Malkin.
