Well, the dream of signing Corey Perry in the off-season has officially died. The Anaheim Ducks have inked the Peterborough native to a massive eight year, $69 million contract. In spite of rumors that he'd test the market, Perry chose to stay with the only NHL franchise he's ever played for. According to Bob McKenzie, Perry gave various reasons why he chose the Ducks including his relationship with captain Ryan Getzlaf and Anaheim's position in the standings as well as the fact that re-signing clubs can provide eight year contracts while new clubs can only provide seven year contracts. In summary, it's a sad day for fans interested in Perry's services and a happy day for the winger's family. Whether you fall into the former or the latter (hi, Mr. Perry), here are some links for the day:

Know Your Enemy: Buffalo Sabres Edition

  • I haven't been able to find much roster information on the Buffalo Sabres. However, we should expect Jhonas Enroth to start given that he was last off the ice at practice this morning.
  • Mikhail Grigorenko played well in his first game back in the QMJHL, scoring a goal and adding three assists. Kris Baker over at SabresProspects.com feels that the addition of Grigorenko turns the fifth place Remparts into legitimate QMJHL playoff contenders.
  • Ryan Miller said that Patrick Kaleta "needs to grow up" and has since apologized for the comments. This is a pretty uninteresting story, but I've got nothing else to share.
