I feel many posters just want the flashier names and more exciting players, but Spacek is a very solid D. He will most likely play on the bottom pairing, however.
Very true... Spacek led the team +/- 5 on 5 and all in all, was an even player thoughout the season.
He's decent 2 way defenceman who got seriously skunked on his 65 sog last year. he typically gets his sog though, and as many have mentioned, he may have slowed down some, but he was serviceable, in a lessor role on the team.
