On an Olympic squad, he would have the type of linemates that the WHC could never provide for him. Not to say he's had noone, but not the level of elite Canadian talent of the Olympics, or his NHL teammate of a few years ago. Hope he atleast gets a camp invite.
Personally, I don't think there is a need to left Giroux or Richards off, if Spezza is on the team. I agree with you that I can imagine Spezza with Stamkos, Staal and even with Giroux. And I don't think he has a zero chance. You just cannot left an 85-points player out of consideration, especially with a talent that Spezza has, IMHO.

But it's true it will be hard to find a good spot for him. I won't be suprised if Spezza doesn't make the team. But I won't be suprised if he does either.
