Can't really fault the Belanger signing, seemed like the right move at the time, his history didn't exactly show his offensive game was gone.
This actually might be the perfect summer to "find this years Peca". There may be a Peca type guy available from a low budget team. Remember that Peca was considered overpaid at the time, and the reason we got him for peanuts was because the Isles were cutting salary. This summer, some teams need to cut salary, so getting a guy for pieces might be an option. I'm not sure what those pieces may be though.
