Yes, Spacek is the reason we are still in the hunt, no Markov's return didn't save the season, and Spacek looked bad all on his own at the start of the year (Hamrlik didn't help him one bit when they were playing together) but he's well since been playing a lot better and barring a few glaring mistakes here and there because he's been paired against the top lines almost all season at his age, he's been extremely useful to us. He IS worth the money, at least for this season, look at the other contracts around the league, we signed him as a free agent remember? 2 more years might not be as bad considering that he's still adequate in a #2-#3 role for a limited time as a fill in (albeit not spectacular). Do you see him falling off the face of the NHL in the 2 following years? I guarantee you he won't.
