Peca looking exceptional
Two assists and a few big hits was all it took for me to love Mike Peca. Of course it is still not known whether the peca we got is the 8 goal peca who played for the oilers last season or the peca who scored 6 goals, got 34 hits and blocked 24 shots in 24 playoff games. I personally think we got the playoff peca because he is comeing off of a terrific post season and because he is playing in his hometown where he will presumeably play with a great deal of heart trying to get his favourite team to the playoffs.
A few months ago on the Sportsnet website they posted an article (http://www2.sportsnet.ca/blogs/sean_mccormick/2006/07/18/impecable_signing/) saying how he is best used on a line with young players who can learn defensive skills from him so I say the leafs put him on a line with Matt Stajan as he has added on an extra 20 pounds and is probably fully able to play the wing. Or perhaps Ponikarovsky.
I would like to see him with Tucker but if it’s for the benefit of the team I wouldn’t mind him with the youngsters. In the article they suggest Ben Ondrus but we’ll see.
