In a surprising move, the Chicago Blackhawks waived Corey Perry, terminating his contract due to an undisclosed incident involving a team employee. Perry, now a free agent, prompted speculation about the Toronto Maple Leafs potentially signing him.

On Leafs Morning Take, hosts Nick Alberga and Jay Rosehill discussed the prospect of Perry joining the Leafs, emphasizing his potential contributions to the team at a low cost.
Rosehill expressed interest, citing Perry's experience and playing style.
"I would interested in Corey Perry," he said. "He brings a lot to the table. We're talking hockey here. He can help the Toronto Maple Leafs, you can get him for cheap, he has a ton of experience, and he plays a way that all these guys need to learn and I would be super interested in him, but like you said, I doubt that is going to happen for the off-ice reasons."

They suggested that signing Perry could allow the Leafs to consider parting ways with enforcer Ryan Reaves, considering the potential affordability and Perry's motivation to repair his image.
"You can pull him (Ryan Reaves) in and out like we talked about, that's an option for sure," he said. "Especially when you're getting him for so cheap, I think someone's going to sign him, but I don't think he's going to have 3 million dollar offers coming to him by any stretch of the imagination. I think you could scoop him for close to league minimum. He's going to wanna repair his image and repair the way people look and think about him now after this scandal if you wanna call it that."
