That's one reason i'd rather see Despres go down for now and see Bortuzzo and Strait alternate in that 6-7 spot. I'm sure it won't be long before someone is hurt and we need to call him up.

What do you guys think it would take to snag Corey Perry if he's made available? Something similar to the Hossa trade?

TK, Tangradi, Pouliot + a pick? More?

If Bennett proves worthy of a spot, our forward group would be disgustingly deep if that trade went through:

Bennett-Crosby-Perry
Kunitz-Malkin-Neal
Cooke-Sutter-Dupuis
Glass-Jeffrey-Vitale/Adams

We give up a lot of value, but looking at our roster and prospect pool we can afford it now more than we even could with the Hossa trade. What say yinz?

IMO, it will take more than that to land Perry, even on April 3 as a pure rental.

Also, if we somehow re-sign (or sign on July 5) Perry, we likely won't be able to afford Cooke and Dupuis. Which is fine with me.

Now that we have a new (right-handed) third-line C, we can find players that cater to his game. Jeffrey would be a natural fit on his line, and we could plug the 3RW role with any number of UFA possibilities.

But I'd LOVE Corey Perry, there's no doubting that.

Probably, considering Don Waddell isn't their General Manager.

I think that most people would agree that Parise and Perry are the 2 of the top ideal wingers for Crosby. I just love Perry's grit and ability to get under guys skin

I would do that deal in a split second, but that "package" will not get you Perry.

I don't think they would be too interested in Derrick Pouliot, they already have an OFD which is Cam Fowler.

if the likes of TK, Tangradi, Martin, Jeffery and Strait are at the center of our proposal, you probably aren't going to get a stud winger in return. maybe in real life, but defiantly not on HFboards.

Yeah.. it sort of has that Letang/Gogo vibe doesn't it? Letang/Gogo were more than ready but eligible to play down and it worked that way. I'm okay with Bort/Strait getting that spot on occasion as we have so many games so quickly. A night off here and there would be beautiful for this team.

For Perry, what if we sold the defensive farm. (i.e. Pouliout + Morrow + Maatta)?

Would NEVER do that for a couple months of Perry. Even if he was to sign an extension I don't think I would.

The more defensive prospects we deal to the same team, the lower their value becomes.

Remember when the Penguins had Hossa? That was weird.
