Like I just said in the Wings forum:
I really don't think Perry is worth more then 7.5M, maybe even only 7M on a long term deal. His style will general lead to a quicker break down and he never had a huge peak that he will be able to continue his style into his 30s. The comparable to me is an Iginla lite, Perry is consistent but when Iginla fell from his peak years of 80-100 points he became a guy in the 65-85 range.
If Perry falls from his peak scoring he's a 50-65 point guy.I'm not sure that Perry will be able to produce when he's 33,34 or 35, and years 6-7 of that deal could be pretty bad if he is only a 55-70 point guy.
I haven't seen Perry play very much (due to the fact that I'm 1:30 hours ahead of est) but if he breaks down and is only able to produce 55-70 points at the end of his contract while having an 8M+ caphit it could be an ugly cap situation for the team that signs him. Mind you if he can give you 4-5 years of 80+ points while giving you some grit & meanness it's a good deal.
My feeling is he's a 70-80 point guy and isn't worth over 7.5M on a long term deal.
Mind you this is all in theory that the cap isn't at 80M or 85M by the time year 6/7 rolls around.
