It's not fair to compare him to Spezza. Spezza's a lot more talented than Vermette and they play much different styles. Vermette was told to be a defensive guy under Martin, killing penalties and what not, and is obviously more conscious of the defensive zone than Spezza, who thinks mostly about offense.

I think Antoine has the ability, he just has to get his confidence up. He's played a lot better these last few games so hopefully that can help.
