Perry's Contract Termination Raises Many Eyebrows

image

As you may know, Corey Perry's contract was terminated by the Chicago Blackhawks following an incident at a team event involving alcohol.
This whole saga has been the hot topic among hockey fans for the past week, and there's a good reason: the organization's handling of the incident.
First, the Blackhawks announced that the organization had decided to scratch him. Then, his agent revealed that Perry was the one who took the decision to leave the team.
This led to a lot of speculation, as we had no idea what was happening.
We later learned that Perry had unacceptable conduct at a team event, which left no choice for the Blackhawks but to terminate his contract.
However, it's important to note that the police never got involved, as nothing illegal happened.
Now, Corey Perry is in a position to screw the Blackhawks.

Perry to File a Grievance Against the Blackhawks?

According to the Chicago Sun Times, it could be a realistic scenario.
The NHLPA has 60 days to file a grievance for wrongful contract termination. As of now, they're still "reviewing the matter," said Perry's agent.
Perry did nothing illegal, which could be enough to file the grievance.
Considering that Perry was in the final year of his contract, and that the Blackhawks have a lot of cap space, they could go for a settlement if the NHLPA decides to file the grievance.
This scenario could be ideal for both parties. The organization's top priority is installing a culture within the team that doesn't leave any room for toxicity.
If that's really the case, they surely won't mind paying him off.
Do you think the NHLPA will file a grievance against the Blackhawks for Perry's contract termination?
"The timeline of the Corey Perry saga has become slightly clearer.

And this might not be over yet. The fact Perry's actions were not considered a criminal matter could provide significant grounds for an NHLPA grievance."
