The Ducks, as of now, appear to be a contender for the cup. Fact: trading Perry hurts those current chances of winning a cup, and it's a huge factor in whether or not Perry will be traded. No doubt, they'll explore the option, and should they completely fall apart by the trade deadline, it wouldn't surprise me to see him moved - but, in this current situation, I'd say that Anaheim holds onto him. This isn't a Kovalchuk or Hossa situation, where it was either lose the player or get a return - no chance of a playoff run forced their hands.
Someone actually gets it

On top of this, for a team like Anaheim, a deep playoff run has huge financial benefits, something else that is important for us.
