Holy sheet. I like Peluso - I think he's got a lot more puck skills and hockey sense than people give him credit for when they assume he's just a fighter - but Marchand is a useful top-6 player. End of discussion. The Jets would be fighting off fits of laughter accepting that deal if it was offered.
