2 players who could literally be heroes if they came here. Do they get along with Carlyle?

Perry is from Peterborough but spent most of the lockout in London, where he played his junior hockey for the Knights. You’d have to think - if home is where the heart is – Perry’s desire to spend so much time in southern Ontario would give the Toronto Maple Leafs an enormous leg up in any bidding war that might occur for his services next summer.

And then, there’s the additional intriguing possibility that Perry and Getzlaf could move together as a package.
Under terms of the new collective bargaining agreement, the Leafs could offer identical seven-year contracts to both players and then worry about making the salary cap numbers work after the fact.

If the Leafs could also land a goaltender of Roberto Luongo’s stature in the meantime, it would also enhance their chances of attracting free agents in the future.

Toronto may be the team best suited if you consider salary as well as cup-chance . Toronto is probably the only team capable of offering both 8m a piece and a healthy chance to make a cup run post-acquisition. PLENTY of teams would be willing to offer them 7ish mill and a cup chance but as INDIVIDUALS.

The questions that need to be answered are:
Do they want to play together?
Do they mind playing in Toronto's market?
Does the extra 1mill annually on their salaries make a difference to them ?
Do they want to play under Carlyle ?

If all they care about is money and want to play together it's very likely they could end up here.

Reminds me of Brad Richards articles when he came to play to Leafs before he signed with Rags the following off-season.

I'd happily go $11 million for both and worry about the cap implications later. Just to drive home how serious we are. I remember playing with the cap geek calculator and getting it to within ~$350,000 of the $64 million cap next season. Lupul unfortunately had to be cut loose.

You'd think people would learn their lesson after awhile.

We've had posters bring up all of these arguments and more, this is nothing new guys. Ive done it myself in multiple past threads for these two.

I drool over a top six of JVR, Kessel, Getzlaf, Perry, Kulemin etc

"You’d have to think - if home is where the heart is – Perry’s desire to spend so much time in southern Ontario would give the Toronto Maple Leafs an enormous leg up in any bidding war that might occur for his services next summer."

This is, and always has been, highly dubious reasoning.

Also, next time someone blames Leafs fans for these fantasies about star NHL players joining leafs, tell them that this article was written from Vancouver.

Hopefully, the writer isn't a Leafs fan, or my point is futile.

Meet them on July 1st in a private jet, and offer both identical 7 year/8.5 million contracts.

Gotta learn it this upcoming off season.

Do whatever you can, whatever money it takes to land these 2 players!

If Perry is from Ontario and he is a leafs fan send his favorite player to get him for the meeting and to hand him the contract. Would you turn down a contract from Doug Gilmour or Wendel Clark??

Add Sundin and we'd be good to go! I think that would've worked on Stamkos too..oh yeah, we got Burke'd.

I was never a fan of the pursuit in Brad Richards. I admit I maybe got a bit caught up in the hype of it all and eventually kinda wanted him to come here. But I'm glad we didn't sign him.

But as for these two, I'm fully on board for throwing big contracts their way. Getzlaf moreso because he just fits that glaring need so much.

Actually, I read something yesterday (cannot remember the source but, if I do remember, I'll post the link here) in which it talked about how Perry would like to lpay closer to his parents and the rest of his family.

All I will say is I hope the Leafs do what the Wild did last summer.

It'd be nice just to get one of them plus a centre from this year's draft.
