    This isn't really a Red Wings related post. Just thought I would share a personal story about Mike Peca, who officially retired this past week.

    Mike played his junior hockey in my hometown. We were in the same high school together (the Sudbury Wolves had all of their out-of-town students attend our school), and shared some of the same classes.

    I remember writing a final exam for a class called "World Issues", an advanced class dealing with world politics and modern philosophy.

    At one point during the exam, I got that uncanny feeling that someone was watching me as I feverishly tried to answer the 4 essay questions that had been placed in front of me.

    I looked up, and noticed that THREE sets of eyes were on me. Wtf?

    Mike, who was sitting to my left, was basically copying everything word for word from my paper. I look over to my right, and Brandon Convery (remember him?) was doing the exact same.

    I started to panic, thinking if we got caught, I would lose the credit for the class, and risk getting suspended.

    I nervously looked to the front, and sure enough my teacher was fully aware of what was transpiring at the back of the classroom. He gave me this "raised eyebrow" look, and went back to his newspaper.

    Despite the fact that the three of us handed in almost identical exams, I got a C+ while those two ****ers got a B+ My teacher, who had a great sense of humor, mentioned something about how idiotic the two of them were for choosing ME to plagiarize. Hardy har har.

    Anyways, Mike was not your prototypical prospect you would think would be an impact player in the NHL. He was scrawny! I couldn't believe he turned into an elite checker in the NHL. Then again, I thought the same thing about Todd (Bertuzzi, being scrawny) so what do I know.

    Cheers Mike, and enjoy your retirement.

    It's weird thinking about it now. Damn, you guys remember (ex-Wing) Jamie Rivers? He was also at my school around that time. I remember when he was being touted as the next Paul Coffey, anchoring Canada's World Junior Team powerplay etc.

    Funny how things play out...

    Are their any thoughts on who the Wings may be looking for in a trade?

    Well, there is a trade freeze right now until the Olympics are over. I am skeptical that we will do anything of significance now that we are healthy and have cap issues. There was a rumor that we may pursue a top 6 forward, but I'm not sure who we would unload to make room for that type of cap, and I doubt it would be worth it.

    Oh and welcome to the forum!

    Thanks. Gr8 to be on it. They played well last night, a very upbeat tempo. That is what I like about them. A lot of SOG as well! Perhaps if anything, maybe the defense needs to tighten up. Yet with great coaches and a good GM, I am sure they are watching the tapes.

    Enjoy.

    Jeff Beck is a master. Definitely one of my top 5 guitarists. The evolution of his music is cool too, he has played some really different stuff over the years, and theres always something awesome from each era.

    Bozio is great and he always works with cool people. Vai is kinda a flamer but he certainly knows his way around a fretboard lol.

    Def. I really like his bluesy songs, but it's all really good. The DVD we watched Clapton came on stage and did a song with beck. Awesome.

    I've always really liked vai. But yeah, he is extemely out there... And kinda nuts lol.
