6. The Boston Bruins should consider signing forward Corey Perry.

Corey Perry is a savvy veteran and fresh off of a run to the Stanley Cup Finals with the Dallas Stars. Known as “the Worm”, Perry has made a career of agitating his opponents and scoring big goals.

Perry, the Hart Memorial Trophy winner in 2011, spent the first 14 years of his career with the Anaheim Ducks and won the Stanley Cup in 2007.

Perry has had a remarkable career thus far with almost 800 points and over 1,000 games played in the regular season to go along with 98 points in his postseason career.

At 35 years old and with the injuries beginning to mount, Perry’s career is likely heading into its final act. Based on his previous contract with Dallas, it seems that Perry wants one more crack at winning the Stanley Cup and wants to be somewhere he can contend.

The Bruins can provide him with a chance at the Stanley Cup and can align him with a play-making center in the form of David Krejci to give Perry the offensive opportunity he will likely be looking for as well.

Perry’s age, injury history, and cap hit will all undoubtedly factor into the process, but I believe his championship pedigree and playoff experience may be worth a second look.
