The article speculates on why the Blackhawks were swift in parting ways with Perry, hinting at the team's challenging period on and off the ice. The Blackhawks, once a powerhouse with three Stanley Cups, faced challenges as their core aged and underwent changes.


Additionally, they dealt with the fallout of the Kyle Beach lawsuit and the alleged cover-up of sexual assault by a video coach over a decade ago. With the team in a rebuilding phase and aiming to keep a low profile, the decision to let go of Perry may have been a strategic move.


Despite the controversy, other teams seeking depth and aiming for a Stanley Cup run might be less hesitant to sign Perry. The article concludes by suggesting that Perry could soon join another team in the near future.
