Veteran winger Corey Perry signed a one-year deal with the Chicago Blackhawks with a cap hit of $4M. Some eyebrows were raised on the dollar figure but so far Perry has done well. In 11 games played, Perry has scored 2 goals and 7 points.

Perry along with other veteran players like Nick Foligno and Tyler Johnson are helping to mentor young Connor Bedard through his first NHL season.
Chicago is in a rebuilding faze and isn't expected to make the playoffs. With Perry on an expiring contract it makes sense that Perry will likely be traded at some point during the season.
There will be plenty of teams lining up for the veteran winger but their are two teams in particular from the Atlantic division who will definitely be checking in.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have had the pleasure of facing off with Perry the last three years in the first round. Toronto is starving for secondary scoring in the bottom six and Perry can certainly deliver points.
Perry fit like a glove on the Tampa Bay Lightning roster in his two seasons with the club. After a few down years many skeptics thought Perry could be winding down his career but he came to Tampa and had a career reinvigoration.
Both teams mentioned are tight against the cap, but the good news is Chicago has plenty room to retain half of Perry's salary.
Perry will be attracting plenty of interest when the time comes and it would be wise of Brad Treliving and Julien BriseBois to check in on the veteran agitator.
