With Friday's assist being only Corey Perry's second point in the Ducks' first six playoff games, he is having a slightly slower start to the postseason than the team might have expected from their second highest point-getter of the regular season. (Updated 5/12/13).
Corey Perry, Perry, quite contrary -- where the heck did your game go? After posting the league's only 50-goal effort and winning the Hart Trophy in 2010-11, Perry's game seemed to evaporate at points last year. He did finish with 37 goals, which was good enough for a tie for sixth in the NHL and he still brought you over 100 PIMs. But his 60 points were a whopping 38 fewer than the previous season. We know he caught lightning in a bottle in 2010-11, but we aren't prepared to give up on him just yet. He's one of the most annoying players in the league when he's on his game and at 27, he's just now entering his prime. He's probably not the near-100 point superstar he was two years ago, but he could have several 40-goal, 70+ point, 100 PIM seasons left in him. Draft him for that -- not his exploits of 2010-11.
