    Whats the deal with him, will he be drafted THIS spring. He's had good numbers for 2 years in a row with London and some teams may like his pedigree. Will he be passed over a second year and become a UFA or will someone use a 5th or 6th rounder on him ?

    my guess is NO. its the third time he is eligible, when thats the case you have to dominate pretty good to get drafted or play a big role on in one of the top leagues in europe.

    I don't know if he'll get drafted, but he'll sign as a UFA after his over age season next year. I wouldn't be surprised if Anaheim signs him and he plays in the AHL as he was invited to a summer camp there and his brother Corey is on the team.

    Adam plays a Dave Andreychuk style of game, he's most dangerous within six feet of the crease. Problem is he's not nearly big or strong enough to play that role in the NHL. I can't ever see him making it.

    That's a good description, IMO. While a guy like Perry clearly has some guts/tenacity and will go into the crease, it's like in London all of his tenacity gets focused purely into the task of being a complementary offensive player to the big guns there. If you could have harnessed some of that into making him a more complete player along all 200 feet of the rink length, maybe he'd have a better chance as a pro. On the otherhand, maybe if he had done that, he wouldn't have had the stats to get noticed either. I agree that he'll probably get signed, but I'd be surprised if he gets drafted.

    dont say ouch, thats the truth. Most of his goals are garbage goals, or has a gaping empty net to shoot at from a beautiful backdoor pass from Kane Gagner or Kostisyn. All his goals come this way, as well he is kind of a *****, he cant stand up for himself, very weak and undersized, as well as ugly lol. But there is NO way he makes the NHL
