There are maybe 3 players on this team I wouldn't be mad about taking an uncontested shot after coming into the zone down the wing, and Spezza is probably the best at it.

Hyman-Matthews-Nylander
Mikheyev-Tavares-Marner
Robertson-Thornton-Simmonds
Barabanov-Spezza-Perry

It might not be good, but it'd be fun.

1/4 of the way there.

Good deal.  Good signing.  Good veteran.  Can't complain in any way about this.  Hopefully we can find one or two more steals like this.

Keefe is really going to get it from the media when he scratches Spezza for the season opener.

Haha seriously. Imagine telling Leafs fans 10 years ago that signing Jason Spezza would receive unanimous support from the entire fanbase.

Imagine telling leaf fans 10 years ago that they still won't have won a playoff round since 2004.

I mean that would have seemed slightly believable.

Can we retain him as a coach after he retires? I think we have to.

Taylor Hall, would you like to play left wing for either Auston Matthews, John Tavares, or Jason Spezza for the next season? 700k because escrow sucks? OK?

 :(

They're totally on the right track though.

They're only a Lundqvist and Gudas or something away from the promise land.

That, and a lot of luck.  The plan is working.
