Just something to ponder. I'm not connected by any means.
I've read somewhere about Perry being interested in the Leafs because he is an Ontario boy... probably a Toronto area newspaper.
Frankly the Sens make more sense since a) they have more cap space next year, and b) they have a better team and at 27 do your really want to spend the next three (hundred)
years as a part of a rebuild.
His trade value isn't great for the Ducks right now because he is a pending UFA so they probably will feel better keeping him for the season. If, however, the Sens were confident in re-signing him I can see that they'd have the assets to get Anaheim's interest (another advantage over the Leafs).
