If you're Ottawa, why?
The ottawa fan's opinion is interesting. I gathered the sentiment was that Ottawa and its fans were ready to move on from Spezza given his two year decrease in production and his large cap hit. But if he is envisioned as the remaining piece from a minor rebuild then he for sure would cost a lot more. Because of the low salary cap, cap room is a valuable commodity and is the reason valuable players are often under-valued at the trade deadline. There are numerous example over the past several years of players being acquired for what seems to be far less than they're worth. If Ottawa thinks its a worthy contract then of course the nucleus of any deal changes drastically.
