Perry could definitely be the missing piece for us. I don't see any other pressing need for many years ahead than a big elite right-handed scoring winger. We're in good shape at every other position. And considering Perry's only 27, you know he can grow with that team.

It's not going to be cheap though. I'm guesing 8M over 7Y is going to be the asking price.
Boston finished with 74 points the year before they signed Chara. He wasn't added to be the missing piece he was added so that they could build around him.
