Bergevin discusses reasons for Corey Perry's departure

CH general manager Marc Bergevin was on 91.9 Sports today and he took the opportunity to talk about the departure of veteran Corey Perry last off-season.

It was in Bergevin's plans to keep Perry, who quickly became a crowd favorite last year. However, he was unable to do so and Perry left for the hot sun of Tampa Bay.

Bergevin hinted that it wasn't a question of money or the number of years on the contract with the former Stanley Cup winner. The implication was that it was more of a family decision, especially with the restrictive health measures in Canada compared to the United States.

Nevertheless, retaining Corey Perry's services would not have changed everything about the Tricolore's dismal start to the season. He is probably happier in Tampa right now with a team that is winning a little more!
