That leaves Peckham.

EDIT - if by "knows when to pick his spots better" you mean "doesn't fight", then you're right. Jacques has as many fights this year as Cogliano, Brule, Gagner, and Foster.
For this season I think this is unfair for JFJ. By fighting more he would only increase the chances of him further injuring his back and pretty much deep sixing any chance at a hockey career.
While recovering he's still banging, playing reasonably well and picking his spots. I don't see that he's hurt us. I do think with a guy like Zac gone the expectation going forward is he fights more and hopefully he's ready for that.

Also I don't see a problem with Vandermeer going forward on at least a 2 yr contract. I don't mind having some experience on the backend.
