08:26 AM ET 03.11 | While Jarome Iginla's name is no stranger to the West's likely-to-move lists, more eyes this season may be on Anaheim's Corey Perry. If they can't sign [Perry] in three weeks (maybe he wants $9 million a year), they'll do one of two things: deal him for three live bodies and a first-round draft pick (see [ Marian Hossa, Ilya Kovalchuk]), or work out a sign-and-trade deal with a team the way the NBA does. The team that wants Perry will sign him to an exorbitant rate, but give up way more because he's not a rental then. The Philadelphia Flyers could do it as long as they were giving up Brayden Schenn or Sean Couturier in the deal, and I'd hold out for Wayne Simmonds to offset Perry's snarliness.

I for one would not be very happy if they traded out Simmonds and Schenn for Perry

Philly sure seems to be the popular destination (of speculation) these days

Well when you are playing as incompletely as they have the past 4 games (at least) there will be speculations a plenty

As I've said before, the right thing to do is nothing. Perry can do nothing to help this year. The long term fix is the lottery, UFA and buyouts

Especially when Perry can be had for no roster players come July.

Exactly. Perry is a distinct possibility for all 30 NHL teams. It's basically up to him where he wants to go.

I agree. Why would you give up Simmonds and Schenn when you don't have to? Stupid would be a good word for that deal.

I'm assuming it's bad writing more than something management is actually considering.

Is the EJ of the same journalistic quality as the NYPOST and ESPN then?

Holmgren has some catching up to do to reach that special level of ineptitude though;
