3. Corey Perry

Similar to Bellemare, Perry is in his upper 30’s and not the most fleet of foot. Despite the Lightning probably wanting to bring a new look to their bottom two lines, it is reasonable to think Perry could be back for another season.

Perry has already proven in recent years he is willing to take short term,  cheap deals in another attempt to hoist the Stanley Cup for the second time. There are not many better options out there to give a one year, $1 million or less contract to in the NHL to round out your fourth line. If Perry would like to come back, the Lightning probably would probably offer him another year. Money will not be an issue.
