Edmonton's Acquisition of Corey Perry Could Trigger a Major Trade Move

Edmonton Oilers Eyeing Corey Perry for a Potential Signing

The Edmonton Oilers are reportedly close to signing Corey Perry, a move that could come at a significant discount compared to his previous contract with the Chicago Blackhawks. This unexpected financial advantage presents the Oilers with new strategic opportunities.


Possible Trade Involving Jack Campbell Due to Perry's Deal

Insider Frank Seravalli suggests that the favorable deals for Corey Perry and Holloway might lead the Oilers to consider trading away goaltender Jack Campbell. Seravalli notes:

«I think getting those two pieces for free (Holloway & Perry)..changes the total outlook of their deadline..I think it opens up the door for them to move Campbell.»

This development comes as Campbell has been on the Oilers' trade block since early this year and has struggled to secure a spot in the roster. The acquisition of Perry might alter the financial dynamics, making a trade involving Campbell more feasible.

Competition for Perry Among NHL Teams

Despite a lull in his career following his termination, Corey Perry has garnered interest from multiple NHL teams. The Tampa Bay Lightning, Florida Panthers, and New York Islanders have all been part of the conversation around acquiring Perry.

The final details of Perry's potential signing with the Oilers are yet to be released. This deal, if finalized, could pave the way for Edmonton to make a significant trade, potentially involving Jack Campbell. The evolving situation is set to have a considerable impact on the team's strategy and roster composition.
