Jason Spezza is a healthy scratch for today's game. Coach's decision. #DALvsBOS

Did anyone win this trade? He was a point a game player for the Sens and performed GREAT in the 07 playoff run till he ran into the Ducks literally. But the Sens sure didn't get anything back that was worth anything.


 He wanted to leave. Got tired of everyone sh**ing on him for everything that was wrong with the Sens. Murray sent him to Dallas more as a favour than trade. Unfortunately we gave up a first line centre for guys that didn't work out. We have never been able to find a top line centre to replace him.


 Well Murray wanted to send him to Nashville for a 1st and Hornqvist, but Spezza nixed it.  His NTC was what killed any chance of a good deal, ala Heatley.

Saw a note on twitter today that Chris Wideman is still hoping to return this year.... made me think 2 things that are oddly contradictory.... first... I didn't realize his injury was quite that bad... and second that I actually kind of forgot about him.

Spezza looked good up until this year tbh. When I went to the Dallas game he really slowed down a lot. The past few years though he'd been a decent second-line centreman and they used him on the pp sometime but really he had maybe 2 good years after his trade? (As someone who stalk- I mean has watched him intently)


 Yeah, he slowed down quite a bit over the last few years.  To be fair, though... he's not young any more, and he had a lot of injury issues early in his career that are probably catching up with him now.

 

He still has the flash and crazy skills that come out once in awhile, but he's not the same player now.

I still remember in playoffs in 03 when he was trying to force his way into the lineup and Martin was balking, Russell and Homer and Senior was Spezza ready then? Will he have a day when he retires in Ottawa?

Yeah, Karlsson was the "sexy" pick for the league, not the right pick.

And I would certainly rather he take the extra time off... if he's going to use it responsibly and work on healing up.

Should EK play in the all star game or rest. I'd prefer he rested up. If anyone, Stone should be the one going to the game.
