He's been a net negative possession player last 4 years and hasn't topped 20g in last 3 years. He is a less physical Backes who can shoot but can't create or drive possession. Not a good fit for today's NHL. Not to mention coming off major knee surgery.I’m more curious as to the rationale. I don’t follow Perry at all, so saying he’ll be a disaster without any additional context is annoying.
