Peca Hopeful

Mike Peca thinks they will be playing soon. "There are some things in that proposal that are encouraging," Islanders captain Michael Peca said from his offseason home in the Buffalo suburbs.

But it seems like the last couple of days, I've kind of gotten the feeling that something's gonna get done and we're going to be playing hockey again pretty soon."
