then, if Perry STILL doesn't want to re-sign with the Ducks, i think the Pens should see what his asking price is. if it's too high (which is close to a guarantee), the Pens should look at other options.
We're getting tired of hearing people tell us that we NEED to trade him. We're also getting tired of explaining the fact that the playoffs this year are more important than whatever crappy rental package usually gets tossed at teams in this sort of situation. The money is more important to us than picks and prospects. Even if we fall short of the cup, going for that money is still absolutely necessary for a team in our market. A big market team can afford to make that trade off. I doubt that we can.
