from the Toronto Sun,
Ferguson must make a decision on unrestricted forwards Jeff O’Neill, Travis Green and Michael Peca and restricted defenceman Carlo Colaiacovo. It’s unlikely all three forwards will be back, with the 33-year-old Peca having to take a salary hit if he wants to stay and prove a broken leg hasn’t affected his game. O’Neill’s 20-goal ability was not enough to keep him from being a healthy scratch at the end of last season.
The most interesting call could be in goal, where coach Paul Maurice had indicated he would like the hot-and-cold Andrew Raycroft to play 65 to 70 games again, while Ferguson has spoken of bringing in a veteran to both spell off Raycroft and push him for the No. 1 job. Ferguson says that doesn’t mean UFA Jean-Sebastien Aubin is through here, but it’s likely the GM won’t extend the $525,000 one-way deal he had last year.
