If we surprize and are close to the 8th seed this year we will need Peca. If we are out of the playoffs we try to unload Foote and Fedorov but keep Peca for our playoff run in 2008-2009.
but the point is that at this point when you combine where the Jackets are and where Peca is in his career the best thing ha may bring you would be what he returns come the deadline from a contender, that's why a 2 yr deal wouldn't make sense.

The two year deal is my thought only-I've not read it anywhere. But if we are competing with the Rangers, a two year deal could teeze him into signing with Columbus....

We need a veteran center for any chance of the playoffs....which, some think is still possible based on Hitchcocks resume.....regardless of our current roster. Remember, we have many up and coming stars if they can get their head out of their ass.....

According to Dellapina's Blog, Peca will not be a Ranger. Meehan said the Rangers never made a contract offer.

If thats the case these threads were a waste for the most part. But I think we can all agree that the season or at the very least pre-season needs to hurry up and get going!!!

Who says Columbus has either?!

well I guess we'll see what Dubi can do as I don't see anybody else ther at this time that would make sense in that spot.

Obviously the NYR's were interested as even John Dellipina commented it isn't like them to bring in somebody for a full physical as well as meeting all the brass from Slats to Schonfeld to Renney if you aren't extremely interested which leads you to believe something in the physical raised some flags as they didn't even put forth an offer.

not the end of the world but I think he fit a specific role with how the current roster is constructed perfectly but as the season progresses they will likely players that become available but I'd hate to give up any assets when we could have had Peca for peanuts.

time will tell...hopefully Dubi can step up and in but if not I think we'll see an asset surrendered at some point to fill the 3rd line center spot as opposed to the NYR's making the same mistake of sliding natural wingers into the middle which cost them last season.

whatever

he could have helped us, but we can win with or without him either way

now that I think about it, this does leave the Rangers with more room to potentially aquire a defenseman at the trade deadline

At least the Peca part of this issue is decided...Now, the other part of the equation, maybe not answered until some tim in Septmeber, is who are the Rangers thinking of moving to 3rd C---Avery, Straka or Betts ? I think all three are a better chance of Dubi or AA being there...But only time will tell...

As of now, the one guy who benfits most to me is Nigel Dawes..and maybe even a 4th liner/Black Ace like my man Holly....

I know it has been mentioned before, but I really wonder if they did not like what they saw when they gave him a physical. I have been on the fence about signing him, so I am not too upset about letting him walk. I just really hope Dubinsky or AA is ready, because I don't like Avery or Straka as our 3rd line center.

According to Don Meehan, Peca's agent, he was trying to conclude a deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight after speaking with Rangers GM Glen Sather.

"The Rangers are out on Peca," Meehan said in a phone interview a few moments ago. "I spoke with Glen and we both decided to go our own ways
."
Quote:
The Rangers decided not to make an offer, with Sather and coach Tom Renney feeling it was best "to give our young guys a chance," a Rangers spokesman said. "Meehan and Peca were both great throughout the process."

Well the other (and I think more likely) scenario is that they'll look long and hard at Dawes on the wing and move Avery or perhaps even Straka to the third line.

This is good for the Rangers. They have plenty of guys ready for the big show. I say first chance should go to Dawes, as he should be the most NHL ready. Move Straka or Avery to center and put Dawes on the wing. If Dawes doesn't work out try Dubi or Anisimov.

I am super excited about this season

I'm happy we did not sign him, I don't want to hear anyone crying midway though December when we are going though a slump & are sucking on faceoffs that Sather is an idiot for not signing Peca!
OK!?

Keeping the youth moving in the system (again 7 guys can shoot for a spot on the team) and not overloading with veterens is this the New York Rangers?

I'm glad the team learned from past mistakes...Avery can fit as a center if Dubinsky doesn't make it on the 3rd line. Dawes to me is the frontrunner going into camp but it's possible the Rangers start the season with Callahan, Dawes/Dubisnky/etc, and Staal on the roster...AND STILL be a Cup Contender...

I think that would be likely to start the season but after having both at center this year and it not working out and Renney stating about putting Straka at center and him also hurting his wingers play in not so many words leads you to believe that this won't be the longterm plan IMO.
