Peca Feels He Could Help Buffalo

from the Buffalo News,

“I feel like I can help the team in a lot of ways and be a positive influence on the ice and in the community,” Peca said. “With Chris Drury gone, I see myself helping in key defensive situations, key faceoff situations and with leadership.
“I wouldn’t feel I need to be [the captain]. My role and expectations wouldn’t change regardless of that. There’s a lot of good, young, developing leadership on that team.”
Peca said he has some attractive options. The New York Rangers are believed to be in pursuit. Carolina Hurricanes coach Peter Laviolette, who had Peca with the New York Islanders, called frequently before the Hurricanes swung a deal with the Rangers to bring back Matt Cullen.
“I’m still hoping Buffalo will be in the mix,” Peca said. “I hope that the organization sees me as a guy that can come in and help. I’ve been telling people every day out in the community that Buffalo is my first choice if it’s an option.”
