Confirmed by current NBC Sports Chicago broadcaster John Scott that Corey Perry “made a mistake in Columbus one night, drank too much and made a pass at a staff member who worked at NBC”. If that’s all Perry did then it’s not a big deal and nobody should be concerned. pic.twitter.com/dXDLSitSfW

The Corey Perry story has been the talk of the town for the past few months, and I don’t need to remind you of the details because we all know the drill.
Corey Perry was a model player in the league for 18 years. He made a blunder in Columbus one night: he drank too much and made a pass at an NBC employee. – John Scott
Basically, if that’s all it was… We agree Perry didn’t kill anyone.
I’m not excusing what he did, but it’s not as bad as Kyle Davidson implied when he went before the media to address the situation at the end of November.
The story gets even weirder because John Scott tweeted at 1pm this afternoon that he made a “false and misleading statement” to Perry… And he follows up by saying that “it was an off-the-cuff, totally unfounded and false remark”.
On my podcast this week I made a false and misleading statement regarding former Blackhawk Corey Perry. It was an off-the-cuff remark that is completely unfounded and not true. It was a poor choice of words and I’ll try to be more careful in the future.

Often, there’s no smoke without fire…
And that’s why we have to wonder what really happened.
That said, we don’t seem to be any further ahead than we were yesterday. And the more it goes on, the more I think we’ll probably never know the whole story, because there are always different versions emerging.
Maybe that’s for the best, in the end.
– Good news.
