I've liked Theo ever since he beat up Claude lemuiex in front of his teams bench then beaked him after. Hopefully the caution he's played with since he came back from the concussion is gone and in comes out strong this year. He was a beast when he was healthy.

Wouldn't they be better off adding some defensive ability to help keep pucks out of their net instead? He took tough minutes in '10-'11 and did poorly, and got much easier minutes last season and still did poorly.

Playoff teams don't have guys like Peckham as their 6th-8th defensemen.

He's good on the PK and can be a freight train when he chooses. Any team should be fine with him as a 7/8. I still think he will be a solid bottom pairing guy

I never understand the 1.075 type contract. Is that just the agent fee? Really, just such an odd number.

What an odd thing to say.

I'm sure many teams would like a young depth guy in the mold of Andy Sutton. And though it was very apparent last season that - just by watching him - he tends to put himself in bad situations defensively, his stats have never been horrible.

I still think there's something left with this guy.
