Third, the OP still hasn't provided any proof McKenzie said Perry is not re-signing or wants to leave
If Anaheim is losing Perry, they need to replace him. If they can get a guy who's almost as good as him, and will cost a bit less, that's exactly what they need. If they can get a player like Kessel, versus rebuilding, then that's a good move.

It's the simple fact that Phil Kessel for the remainder of this year and next at $5.4m is more valuable than Perry for the remainder of this year. Perry may be the better player, but he's certainly nowhere near better enough to overcome the fact that you get Kessel for a year at $5.4m, along with a year to build comfort-level with the team and negotiate a contract.

This whole thread is based on Perry being unwilling to resign... if you don't agree with that premise, there's no reason to post here. Obviously, the desire from the Ducks is to resign him.
