The UFA talk was hypothetical, I wasn't 100% sure about whether you were asking if I would sign him "today" to that price or take his current contract.

Peca is the same player he was 3 years ago, minus 5-8 goals. The goals are a bonus for a guy that shuts down the opposing teams top line/players. He still brings everything else to the table.

If a trade can be made with Smolinski or White being dealt or another player making approx. $2M, and all salaries just switching hands, the Sens would be getting Peca for around $3M (if White is included) and approx. $2M (if Smolinski is included). There are many different scenerios that can take place. The Sens could package a couple prospects and ask the Isles to pay a portion of the contract or they can swap contracts for Peca...

I can agree with you that if Peca comes to Ottawa and the Sens are just adding his contract without subtracting a guy like White or Smolinski....then it wouldn't be a wise idea, as much as I think a Peca would help.
