The intrigue surrounding Corey Perry's potential return to the NHL this season is very interesting, especially because of his popularity around the NHL. While we're still unsure whether his career is over because of what happened, the situation remains fluid.

Corey Perry Heavily Linked To Canadian Team Who Is Ready To Go All In



An Edmonton journalist's recent publication adds another layer to this unfolding narrative.

"We can assume that Ken Holland will inquire about the forward. If Holland took the risk of signing a contract with Evander Kane, who had a lot of problems off the ice, he would probably not be opposed to talking to Pat Morris, Perry's agent. The acquisition of Kane was a home run for Holland."

It would be quite the turnaround for Corey Perry, who could be an essential player to a team like the Edmonton Oilers. It's not for nothing that they're interested, and Matheson doesn't say this lightly.

"Holland will have to wait until Perry's situation is resolved, and he will certainly have to thoroughly investigate what Perry did to have his contract terminated in Chicago, but if he doesn't think that's a serious obstacle, Holland will go all in for Perry."

- Jim Matheson

It's an all-or-nothing scenario as Corey Perry has until the March 8th trade deadline to secure a new deal otherwise it will be a wasted season
We should anticipate a possible signing in Edmonton or Toronto who are the leading suitors but other destinations could get involved, making for a compelling countdown to the deadline.

Stay tuned for more..
