So much pain. It’s was a phenomenal year in Montréal, you were/are a fan favourite. He’s a great guy and leader.

Perry is very slow for an NHLer, but I’m not exaggerating when saying he has top-5 hands in the entire league. He’s second to maybe only Joe Pavelski in being the best PP net-front presence in the league. He can easily put up 40 points for the Bolts next year.

Also Tampa Bay’s 1st unit will be the best powerplay the world has ever seen. Better than any hockey team ever assembled, even on the international level:

Perry
Stamkos - Point - Kucherov
Hedman

Huge W for Perry, and the Lightning. Cheap and effective bottom 6 guy who can provide a lot more than just his on-ice play.

“Why does it hurt so much?”
“Because it was real.”

Thanks for all the memories Corey! This year’s playoff run was magical, and now the offseason following it is bringing a lot of pain. But I’ll always have the memories of the 2021 season and run. You’ll always be one of my favourite players and I can’t wait to see you enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame in a few years.

Imagine Perry tipping in Hedman’s blast from the point

Agree that Joe sh*ts on everybody when it comes to net front, but after that no one beats Perry. When we had them both, our PP units were amazing. Now with Tampa's PP, it's going to be unfair.

Or him making a no look pass to give Stamkos or Kucherov a wide open net. I’m having nightmares already.

Landeskog is good aswell. As for netfrontpresence... Tomas Holmström was an absolute beast. You could not move his ass out of there. Many tried, guys like Darian Hatcher. He was a touch fooker for a swede...
