If the trade were broken down it would be a Spezza for a 1st, Esposito, and Lehtonen. Lehtonen then traded to Phillie. Based on what I have read so far Phillie fans are more than willing to overpay and give up some future to get Lehtonen if they did a straight up deal with Atlanta.
If you think Spezza is that good, then why do you want to trade him? It's not like Ottawa has an elite center in the organization to replace him.
