Well, aside from the obvious differences between Burns and Perry, it's a bit of a different ballgame. There really isn't much outbidding that can be realistically done on the FA market, Perry likely gets similar offers from every team, so that extra year is a big plus. There's also a desperation factor from certain teams, teams that need every advantage they can get if they want to make a deal for Perry.
If Perry is traded, unless he agrees to something, I don't think we'll see a monumental package, but I do think we'll net a greater return than what Atlanta received for Kovalchuk or Hossa. Especially when we're 2nd in the entire league and are obviously making some kind of a run of our own. I'm sure there'll be an emphasis on guys who can play now, not just prospects.
