Corey Perry Finally Returning to the Montreal Canadiens? We've just learned that the action he took may not be so unforgivable

While forward Corey Perry could soon sign with an NHL team to continue the season, why not the Montreal Canadiens?

The team's players love him, like Cole Caufield and Nick Suzuki, fans appreciate him a lot, and moreover, Perry loves Montreal.

The problem could have been the famous gesture made by the veteran, which led to the termination of his contract, but there is new information on this subject.

See what journalist Elliotte Friedman, who is very well-informed, recently mentioned.


"I don't know what decision Corey Perry will make, but there is certainly a willingness within the union to contest even if Perry refuses. I don't know the exact details and I have no intention of minimizing anything, but there are strong beliefs that the NHLPA cannot allow this precedent."- Elliotte Friedman

If we read between the lines, and we must obviously be careful about what we say, it seems that what Corey Perry did might not be so unforgivable.

For this reason, the NHL Players' Association is clearly preparing to go to appeal in this case. Wow.

If they succeed, Perry's contract termination could be annulled and it could become a simple buyout.

An observer bluntly states that the NHLPA does not want teams to start terminating contracts for "minor" incidents.

This would confirm the rumor that the gesture made by Perry is not so terrible.

In short, it will be interesting to see if a team like the Montreal Canadiens will agree to give Corey Perry a second chance by signing him, especially knowing this now.

It's much less embarrassing for them to sign Perry if the gesture made is not unforgivable in the eyes of the fans.

Anyway, it's an idea we really like.

And you, would you sign Perry at a low price to finish the season, and possibly for next year?

Perry, 38 years old, has a solid 9 points in 16 games this season.
