Hold on Darth --the isles traded away their youth for vets in their mid to late 20's not late 30's come on. Peca is only 29 and will just be entering his prime 28-33 so lets hold on here. Peca is signed for 3 more years so I don't see a "collapse" for some time now. I mean Messier is still playing and he is 42 for c--sakes. Peca and most of the team for that matter are just starting to enter their prime. The trade was a good and fair trade for both sides--I would do it again.
