Seriously, why the focus on Spacek? Is he that much of a problem? For a single year remaining in his contract?

If we could be signing some top free agent, or had to give a huge and unsuspected raise to one of our RFA, or anything like that... sure, he'll be the first to go. But right now? It's not even clear the habs are going to try to spend all their cap space again this year. Spacek is a shadow of what he used to be back in Buffalo, but heck, he's a luxury for a bottom pairing. Why let him go?

Or, let's put it another way: I want Spacek around, so that guys like Weber and Emelin have a yardstick to measure themselves against.
