We have to consider we will need to resign a few players in 14-15( Markov, Subban,Emelin, Diaz.

Do you think its possible at all that if Perry is FA, Bergevin might want to try to sign him?
At this point it's putting the cart ahead of the horse.

1-he may be re-signed with the Mighty Ducks or traded and then sign there or have a trade and sign in late June

2-his price tag may be too high for what MB wants to pay, pretty obvious he values cap management and won't sign a guy that will be off his "scale" rightly or wrongly. Perry will carry a very big cap hit without the ability to do a back diving Parise/Suter/Hossa/Richards/Kovalchuk type deal. His cap hit will be 8-9 mil over 7 years.
