Highly Possible

The NYPost.com is reporting that the Rangers and Michael Peca will resume talks and could come to an agreement, which is very likely to happen.

mikster’s note: The Rangers lost two penalty killers in Jed Ortmeyer (free agency) and Matt Cullen (trade). They need an experienced penalty killer and a very good face-off center for the third line. update: New York Dailey News had quotes from Michael Peca saying that he wants to play for the Rangers and that he would not give them cap issues. The Rangers are expected to deal away Darius Kasparaitis, if not then send him to the minors where his salary will not count against the cap, and Brandan Shanahan’s bonuses will count against next season. With Peca signed, the Rangers will be slightly under the salary cap.
