I said it before and I'll say it again. A playoff run is much more important than the meager assets Perry would return. I'm all for selling heavily. I've advocated for it before. But only when the team is not going to make the playoffs.
If you keep Perry, yes you lose the 1st + B prospect that you would get in return. But you also get a) a playoff run and possible championship b) increased chance of being able to keep Perry.
It's not black and white. Decisions can't always be made on demand. Maybe Perry really has decided to move on. Or he may be undecided. Or he may want to test the market but be willing to come back. If you sell him, he's gone for sure. If you keep him around for a run, then returning might look like a better option.
If you want to sell Perry, then don't half-ass it. Concede the playoffs. Koivu, Steckel, Lydman must all also go. Souray too IMO, but that will be less popular. You'll also be run out of the GM job.
