Former Habs veteran follows in Marian Hossa's footsteps

Who thought last year that the signing of Corey Perry would have such an impact on the Habs? Let's face it, the 36-year-old veteran continues to put up very good seasons, despite his age approaching 40.

It's not for nothing that the Tampa Bay Lightning gave him a two-season contract last summer. Once again this year, Perry is doing very well and offering a very satisfying offensive performance for the very little money he costs.

Despite a slow start to the season with only two points in 17 games, Perry now has 20 points, ten goals and ten assists. He would be the Habs' leading scorer at the moment.

After playing in the last two Stanley Cup finals on the wrong side, the former Duck could emulate Marian Hossa if he wins the Cup this year with Jon Cooper's team. Between 2008 and 2010, Hossa lost in the Stanley Cup finals every year and won the third year with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Will it be a similar scenario for Perry? We hope so!
