I'm not sure MM could get more for Peca than he could for Scatchard anyway. Washington has been itching for a rumored fire sale for quite awhile, yet who have they been able to move? Konowalchuk? No one was willing to trade any assets for Weimer, who could have helped quite a few teams. Same with Malhotra. If teams are unwilling to take on those small salaries, moving a player like Peca (or Lang. Or Cujo) who make quite a bit more and who are signed past this season could require a GM being bent over the barrel and selling far under value if he wants to move a player off the payroll that badly.

If MM (or any GM) attempts to move a player like Peca, they will recieve far less in compensation than a player of Zetterberg, Datsyuk or Fischer's value unless that team is also willing to eat a substantial amount of salary. Even them I think it will be a hard sell.
