"Sign and trades" don't happen in the NHL.
New CBA, new circumstance. Never say never about these kind of things, especially since the teams in question here, Anaheim and Montreal, are both serious playoff contenders. Neither want to give up present for the future, they will only give up present assets if they get present assets back. Age means little here, since we're talking about a trade between two long-term contracts. Habs upgrade by getting a proven PPG commodity at the very top of the league, while Ducks get a 1st line winger that may not be the best in the league, but is still progressing. Also, Perry won't get $9 million, as Getzlaf, an equivalent player that's been even better than Perry this season, just signed for $8.25 million. Part of the reason for the Habs to make such a deal is to get a player signed below perceived market value.
