Corey Perry is an exceptional player. Although he has played in the last three Stanley Cup finals with three different teams without winning, he is still hungry to win and lift the trophy a second time.

Speaking on BPM Sports, Perry revealed the real reason for his departure from Montreal. With the loyal services he offered to the Habs, in addition to having been an excellent mentor for the youngsters, the fans were disappointed, but we can understand it.

Perry accepted a two-year contract with the Lightning instead of a one-year deal with the Tricolore.

When you think about it, there is nothing surprising in this. The forward is at the end of his career and he wants to win. Moreover, he knew that Carey Price and Shea Weber would not be coming back, which would directly weaken the Habs. Playing one year for a team that was not destined to win and trying to get another contract afterwards would have been difficult for him.

Tampa offered him a great opportunity to play for a mature team that was ready to win another Stanley Cup.
