Three center positions are locked down.
Stamkos is not an international centre, he better suited at wing with the game he brings. There is one center position left and that's pretty much a lock as well with Patrice Bergeron.
In a short tournament chemistry matters and that's the only reason Perry would be considered for a postion on this team. He brings a unique skill set with his quick hands his accurate release and ability to find open space when playing with Getzlaf. Now obviously he doesn't add much in the transition game but the tight games will be played in small spaces and special teams will make the difference, another area where Perry succeeds in. He also brings an element of simple Hockey where he's always constantly in front of the net screening and making life difficult for the opposition goaltender. There's a lot Corey Perry adds to a team, don't write him off just yet.
