I would tend to go for a similar player; cheaper, younger, less injury prone, for that matter, less overrated than Peca, that's right I said it (I am well aware that Canadiens fans are the masters of overration, especially when we are winning, so don't point out the obvious)
Peca would be playing on the checking line. During the last 3 years, Juneau has been the checking centre and his minutes per game have mostly been superior to the 2nd line centre's minutes. He would usualy play anywhere from 17 to 20 minutes which is alot for a forward. Peca would play that role; Peca would play vs the other teams's top lines. He would realy be a 2nd line center, just not in an offensive role. Besides, good teams have 3 deep lines. Look at Philly, their centers are Roenick, Handzus, Comrie and Primeau. Having a Koivu, Ribeiro, Peca combo could rival that.
