Leafs Sign Mike Peca

leafsReports indicate that the Maple Leafs have signed centre Mike Peca to a one-year contract worth $2.5 million. With $42.8 million now committed to salaries, our free agent spending spree has come to an end.

It's tough to argue against this addition. He's a home town boy who has twice won the Selke Trophy as the NHL's top defensive forward. At a great discount based on his last year's salary, it's a nominal risk, and should we make the playoffs, he's a consistent and proven playoff work horse. It will be interesting to see how he plays with his former nemisis Darcy Tucker.

Another positive is the fact we once again have a Mike on the team. Mikael Tellqvist was never a Mike. The Leafs badly needed a Mike. Here is every Mike to suit up for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Arenas or Toronto St. Patricks.

  • Mike Allison
  • Mike Blaisdell
  • Mike Bullard
  • Mike Byers
  • Mike Craig
  • Mike Eastwood
  • Mike Foligno
  • Mike Gartner
  • Mike Hudson
  • Mike Johnson
  • Mike Kaszycki
  • Mike Kennedy
  • Mike Krushelnyski
  • Mike Millar
  • Mike Neville
  • Mike Nykoluk
  • Mike Palmateer
  • Mike Pelyk
  • Mike Ridley
  • Mike Stevens
  • Mike Stothers
  • Mike Walton

From one Toronto Mike to another, welcome!
