Michael Peca-C- Maple Leafs Aug. 10 - 5:57 am et

Mike Peca will know on Friday if he will become a member of the New York Rangers.
The Rangers have been looking for a third line center since trading Matt Cullen to Carolina this off-season. Peca has been talking only to the Rangers over the last few weeks and GM Glen Sather should let Peca know on Friday if he will make Peca a Ranger. "I'm talking to Glen," Peca's agent Don Meehan said. "If you ask me, I'd say the chances are 50-50 that he'll sign with the Rangers. Michael is extremely interested in them. And we're not really talking to anybody else." Stay tuned.

From CBS Sportsline about an hour ago:

Quote:
Michael Peca, C: There has been a big debate in Toronto about bringing back the veteran whose qualities have been overshadowed by injuries in the past few seasons. Peca was a $2.5 million player last season, and the Leafs are bumping up against the cap. So are the New York Rangers, for that matter, but Peca's agent said he has been talking only to them recently because his client wants to play there. He'd have to take a big pay cut, although Peca's former team, Buffalo, is a possibility, and the Sabres have plenty of cap space.

for what it worth, Sather returns from vacation today

Now looks like Columbus is in the picture

The Blue Jackets are pursuing unrestricted free-agent center Michael Peca, but they aren't likely to get an answer until Monday, at the earliest.

"I've spoken to Columbus about Michael," said Don Meehan, Peca's agent. "We've talked to a number of teams, really, and I'll sit down with Michael on Monday to discuss where we want to go."


Quote:
Peca reportedly has been on the verge of signing with the New York Rangers, but the Rangers have salary-cap issues after signing free-agent centers Chris Drury and Scott Gomez this summer. Reports also say the deal has been agreed upon but that it's on hold until general manager Glen Sather returns from vacation.

Peca was in New York two days last week, meeting with Rangers officials. Team doctors examined his leg, which was broken and surgically repaired in December.

"It's a nonissue," Peca told the New York Daily News. "I've been skating for the better part of 2½ months now. My speed and anything I can do on the ice is where I want it."
