Peca Wants To Help A Team With The Cup

from Jerry Sullivan of the Buffalo News,

It’s hard to imagine that no one could use Peca’s experience and grit. He’s a two-time Selke winner as the league’s top defensive forward. He’s gone to two Cup finals. He’s played for six NHL teams, four in the last five seasons.

Peca is one of those players whose intangibles make any team better. No one plays tougher for his size. That’s the problem. The word around the league is that Peca hit so hard, for so long, that there’s little left to give.

“I do hear that,” he said. “It’s in the back of your mind. But then you find a real purpose to play again. My sole purpose is to try to win a championship. That’s my motivation, to win a Stanley Cup. I don’t want to play just to play and have a job or make money. I want to be in a position to win, or a position that’s going to be great for me and my family.”
