Homer might not have known it, but there was not point clearing room for Perry, he wasn't coming here anyway....

Toronto Sun: Corey Perry felt lure of Maple Leafs, Red Wings before re-signing with Ducks
Do we have any reason to believe that the Flyers were targeting Perry? I mean, if he had reached UFA, I'm sure they would have made an offer--they make a play for most marquee free agents--but that's a bit different from actively clearing room.

I suspect they know that the big money investment has to be on the blue-line.
