Exactly. The amount of teams interested in renting Perry is probably <10. You have to pretty much assume your team has a good chance of winning the cup and gamble some of your future for the present. Personally, I want him traded if he isn't signed by the deadline. Yeah, our team will be weaker in the short term, but I feel like we have prospects on the verge of making the jump and truthfully an amazing first line center to help them get there. It would just hurt way worse to lose him for nothing. And we have a balanced team now, it's not like if the 1997 team traded Selanne or Kariya.
