I was wondering why nobody mentioned that before you. Same with the Tanguay trade. Right now, Peca is not a scorer. He is a very good checking/defensive center and not much more. Maybe a change of scenery would help his offense, but he is by no means an offensive player. He isn't really much more than Kris Draper (top 30 in goals right now) at this point in his career. Trading Tanguay or Datsyuk (for almost anybody, let alone a checking player) is basically out of the question for Col and Det. They are both in the top ten in scoring. Who would trade a young player near the top of the scoring race for a $5 million checker?
