Didn't you hear? Perry's new contract is going to be worse than the Gomez and DiPietro contracts
One thing I like about Perry and gives me confidence in him down the road is his hockey IQ, and ability to recognize what aspects of his game need to be fixed. Remember when he first came into the league, he was trying all the fancy moves that worked for him in juniors but wouldn't work in the NHL. It didn't take long at all for him to recognize and fix that part of his game.
Not that I think his game needs very much tuning though. The lockout could have given him some trouble, or maybe his contract situation and afterwards the pressure to prove his worth. It could be a lot of things.
I have no doubt we'll see the Perry we all know next season too.
