I blame Dave Hodge for these continued Spezza rumors.

As Carlton noted above, aside from being a Sen, I don't get all the hate with respect to Spezza.

He's a giggling tool, he would be one on any team. He'd also be a pretty good hockey player on most any team. I'd have a hard time embracing him as a Leaf but I'd probably get over it a few years after he was traded from the Leafs, preferably to Edmonton.

I don't know if it's that easy.  You can probably say the same thing for Heatley or Alfredsson for that matter.  Heatley was better with Spezza than without.

Right and I'd feel similarly uneasy about committing the dollars/cap space to either of those guys.

uuuuhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, what?  Okaaay.

Is this like the Lindros thing back in the day when he started basically saying he was going to be traded to Toronto and that was his only choice?

I haven't liked Spezza play since he was with the Mississauga Ice Dogs. The ONLY way i would trade for him was if his playoff numbers were really good when they went on the cup run a few years ago.


I, too, remember having seen Spezza when he played for the Ice Dogs, way back then.  I had gone to an Ice Dogs-Majors tilt (when the Majors were still called the Toronto St.Michaels Majors) at the Hershey Centre, and kept seeing this very fast-skating and quite talented kid keep getting breakaways thanks to his speed.  I said to myself that that fellow will make the NHL no doubt.  At the time, the Ice Dogs were a dreadful team, but Spezza was one player who stood out from the rest!

Grabbo's goal last night tells you everything you need to know why we don't need Spezza.
