One of the real reasons he is scratched is so he doesn't get injured, then obviously they couldn't buy him out.

Plan A: Look for a team interested in giving him a shot for a late pick or prospect while keeping him in the pressbox.

Plan B: Amnesty him in the summer to take the 4.5M of the cap which will be very valuable for Toronto next season.

Take your pick.
I'd use one of our compliance buy-outs take back the 4.5 cap space and then go hard after Perry if he hits free agency. We already have 6 million in space so adding the 4.5 would give us a nice cushion even after signing him. I don't think the Ducks can afford both Getzlaf and him.

JVR-Bozak-Perry
Kessel - Kadri - Lupul


not a bad top 6 if I say so myself
