The only teams that will trade for Perry as a rental are teams in the East.
No way anaheim trades him to Nashville for a playoff run and then they meet in the first round. Anaheim loses because of Perry's performance. GM out of a job.
Why would nashvile give up any of their assets if they could sign him in the offseason?
The only teams that go for him purely look at him as a short term rental with long term cap relief. An example would be the Rangers trading Gaborik for him. The Rangers need cap relief next season so they likely dont sign him.
A team that could trade for him now with the intent on keeping him long term after this season would be Toronto.
Buffalo is anothe r team that could go for him because they are a smaller market team close to home and they have Pominville or Stafford to send back. By them trading one of those players would open up cap space to resign him.
