I'd bet he wants to win and improve his game even more, because not only as a hockey player, but a human being, you're always looking to improve yourself. I think Perry just looks at what he's done as history and thinks to himself, "ok, what next?" He seems genuinely humble off the ice.
I think Perry just had an off season, and I suspect a lot of it has to do with the lockout. He just never seemed to find his game, and I think this will end up being his version of the 2011-2012 season that Getzlaf had. Next season I have no doubt we'll see the Perry we've come to expect.
