Rumour: Corey Perry to Vancouver Canucks
Say this about the Canucks’ trade rumours with Anaheim: They are getting better.Last week, it was Vancouver’s supposed interest in George Parros, which was quickly shot down as a possibility. This week it’s a former Stanley Cup and Hart Trophy winner on his way to Vancouver.As the rumour goes, Enrico Ciccone, on the TV show ”Le Match,” said Patrice Brisebois claims a trade is being considered which would send Corey Perry to the Canucks for Cory Schneider, Mason Raymond and Keith Ballard.
We assume the Canucks will also have to throw in a third-round pick. The rumour, which features the same three players you see in just about every Canucks rumour these days, looks great for Vancouver. The Canucks get to offload Ballard’s contract along with acquiring the nasty, playmaking, point-producing Perry, who put up 50 goals last year. How do the Ducks fare in this rumour? Well, they do get the ready-for-prime-time Schneider. But they still have Jonas Hiller, signed for a couple more years at $4.5 million.
