Choice of:

Desharnais/Plekanec/Eller
+
Gionta/Cole/Bourque
+
Anyone in the system except PK/Gorges

Doubt this could really get him, but given contract status, it's easily fair value.

I see them prioritizing Getzlaf. You don't get those power forward centers through trade. If they give up one, it's Perry.
He is 38+ and UFA this off-season. That's why they need a 2nd center.

Plekanec would be an ideal center for the ducks he could play premium pk minutes and score some scrappy goals.

But i doubt the ducks would trade one of Perry getzlaf before being absolutely sure they doesn't resign so maybe Ryan?

Plekanec + Pick prospect for Ryan?

I'd go as high as offering the Ducks

Perry and a defense prospect.
That still doesn't make sense. If he really wants to play in Montreal you could sign Perry as free agent in a few months without throwing some big assets away.

It's called competition. Sometimes you have to trade for players and make it worth their while to stay.

No that would be called reckless and stupid management. There's nothing to expect for the Habs this season. You're asking your team to do the exact opposite of what a rebuilding team needs to do.
Keep Pleks, re-sign PK and throw Perry an offer once he hits the free agency. It's not that mindboggling

Habs are not a contender with or without Perry. Makes zero sense for Habs to trade for a UFA and give up valuable assets. Habs could wait until the end of the year, sign him and give up nothing.

And if he doesn't hit free agency?

Now what if he signs somewhere else this summer after Mtl didn't even make the playoffs and gave away their 1st pairing defence-man and 2nd line center for a rent ?

My team is Anaheim, and I was pointing out the flaw in the assumption that Perry will even be available.

Ah, ok. I took it the wrong way. My main point was to make clear that rebuilding teams don't sell the farm for a rental player. For the record, I wish your team to re-sign Perry.

That's the point. The trade can be made pending a contract extension. You don't let a player like Perry go to UFA just hoping to get him. You try to trade for him before and sign him to an extension. We may not be challenging in the next 2 years but when someone that fills such a glaring hole for you becomes available, you go for it. He'd be a huge piece for our future.

I understand. It's just... if you went by what some posters are saying, there are about 15 teams out there that are going to get Perry for nothing as a UFA. They make it sound so easy. "We'll just sign him as a UFA."

Perry would never re-sign in MTL, you'd be trading for him as a pure rental and you would have to pay alot

You must study english litterature. This is beautiful.

But regarding this topic, I don't think we should trade for Perry. If he tries the UFA market, I can definitely see the habs trying to land him, but I really don't think he would fit well in Montreal. Even as a hab fan, I always have a hard time imagining a star player playing as we expect him to in Montreal. As good as he is, I just can't picture him wearing the habs uniform.

Wouldn't be surprised if Montreal makes him revert to a 25-25 guy.

Holly cow! I hope he's signed to a great contract if that were to go down cause that's a pretty steep price IF not.. You'd be trading for the contract also..

Gotta also take into perspective from a Bergevin standpoint and be realistic and realize that playing in Montreal, his odds are less likely to be as successful as he is playin right now in Anaheim

Not sure I agree with my fellow Ducks fan here. I think MTL would be on Perry's list if he hits UFA, it's only about a four hour drive from home for those who speculate he could sign with an Ontario team for that reason. They're an original six team with a long history of great players, yet he would arguably be their top player walking in along with Price. They look to be on an upward trend with most of their top players being younger guys ( Price, Subban, MaxPac, Galchenyuk etc) and should have enough cap room to offer him a competitive long term deal.

If Perry was dealt to Montreal, I don't see a good reason why he wouldn't at least consider signing there.

Where does Corey Perry lives? I don't know if it's Anaheim but an educated guess would be somwhere in California. Which is far more than just 4hrs away from Montreal.

I meant home as in where he grew up, which is Peterborough, Ontario. I'm not sure where he makes his off-season home.
