Spezza?
« on: September 22, 2011, 08:44:06 PM »
From Dave Hodge on Twitter:

Certain members of the Spezza family expect Jason to be a Leaf. I don't believe it--they do.

I know, just an off-hand tweet, but...

I really don't care for Spezza and I shudder to think what we would need to offer up for him.

Yeah, I don't see the Leafs and Sens making a trade of that magnitude.

Yeah, somehow Dave Hodge's twitter got removed from the beginning of my post - I fixed it.

Certain media people think that tweeting sensationalistic nonsense rumours involving the Leafs is a good way to pick up followers. I don't believe it - Dave Hodge does.

Fair enough. I still have a time thinking of giggles in blue and white, it's unnerving. I just can't stand him.

Dave Hodge just got a twitter account yesterday and he's already learned how to cause controversy.

It'd be almost impossible to fit him under the cap. Also: Is he really worth $7mil??

That's the ONLY reason I could see Ottawa thinking about trading him.  He has four years left and is $7M cap hit.  Of course the team would suck even worse without Spezza so it wouldn't make sense to deal him unless they get something good back.

I know we're trained not to like Spezza and all, but he's a point-per-game centre who can play in all situations, has size, and is pretty darn good on the face-offs. And I'm aware that he hasn't actually hit the point-per-game plateau in a few years, but the potential is still definitely there.  He picked up 57 points in 62 games last season when the next highest Senators forward had a whooping 34 points. He's certainly not perfect (injury troubles, slightly overpaid), but he'd instantly be the best forward/player on our team.

Yeah, I don't see the Leafs and Sens making a trade of that magnitude.

Agreed. Melnyk would have to sell the team first for a trade like that to happen.

Sure.   Spezza for Kadri, Grabovski and Schenn.
