Peca isn't getting bought out.

The Isles will not have a problem paying him this year or fitting him under a cap. If the salary is a problem, it would make far more sense to eat 1-2m of his salary and trade him for a good prospect. There are plenty of teams in the league that would love to have a 2-3m Peca, and it'd cost the owner less money, plus we wouldn't just lose him for nothing.

But that unlikely scenario aside, the guy is worth every penny at 4m to the Isles. There is not another player on the team that can bring all that he brings to the team, nor is there a UFA. With Jonsson gone, he is easily the best defensive talent on the team, and that includes Aucoin and Hamrlik. With a goalie that's still kinda green, he's not the kind of player you get rid of.
