there might be a few to trade for but were not the only ones looking
I would be tickled pink if Gainey signed Peca. Yeah, I know some posters have called him 3rd (and one even 4th) line material. Sorry, I don't buy it. While not an offensive star, Peca does have an adequate offensive side to go with his defence. His offensive performance during the playoffs with Edmonton is IMO more representative of what Peca is capable of than is sub-par regular season indicates. IMO Peca is the best UFA forward available after Elias. He brings maturity, leadership, skill, experience and grit and would certainly have a far greater impact for the Habs in the coming season than any of our other centres, except perhaps Koivu, and as near as I know Koivu is still a bit of a question mark. The question is whether Peca would be interested in playing for the Habs, and that's a big question mark, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Bob land him, and it would be the best move available to him at this point IMO. My 2 cents FWIW.
