Peca won't be resigning unless some changes are made.

He basically said as much...

He could easily sign a contract for probably a year or two with someone else and have a much better chance to play for something meaningful.

Unless Howson can rebound from the Malone snub and get his ducks in order for the draft and impending offseason, Peca will not be back.

Well, I'm a Preds fan so I've had a lot of time to think about this.

Now if only the Detroit fans would make one of these threads...

Good news, we find our puck moving defenseman.

Bad News, he played the 2nd half of last season in Syracuse.

I have to draw the line with even a mention of Nash destroying his knee...call me superstitious, I guess

Well...we'd all get to see him play with Thornton again. Just for the wrong team.

* Fritsche has a career year with some thirty goals.
* Malhotra's brief moment of glory period last year manages to sustain itself, and he ends up being something like a #2 center throughout the year. That's okay, because...
* Brassard, despite a slow start, absolutely takes off in December, and finishes on the top line with with 90 points.
* Russell, having had some time off, comes back ready to kick ass, and starts putting up Rafalski-like numbers.
* Schenn, against all odds, turns out to be good enough defensively out of the box that Klesla can explore his more offensive side. Klesla finishes with 15 goals.
* After being beaten into shape by Hitch, Emery remembers that he used to be considered a Cup-contending goalie, and backstops the CBJ all the way to the finals.
* Nash tops it off with a breakway overtime winner in Game 7 of the Cup finals.

Deranged Optimism. That's the key, folks!
I agree and its nice to see that Cullen agrees with what I have been saying all along, Hitch needs to play Fritsche and give him an HONEST shot on this team, only then will you see his true potential.
