What the hell are you talking about?
1) He hardly blasted Martin.
2) He never demanded a trade from Brampton. He played there for 1 year when he was 15 (local team) and had to enter the draft at 16 and was picked by the icedogs.
There is far too many times that Spezza takes a bad rap for BS, get off the kids back.
As far as the original question, I would not trade Ovechkin for Spezza straight-up because Ovechkin looks like the real deal. However, we've seen what Spezza can do (looks like he should be a good one) and Ovechkin is still up in the air (what he will do). For this reason I don't think that Muckler would deal Spezza for him, Spezza will help this team more right now, most likely.
