Alfredsson not playing with Spezza anymore is just a matter of spreading the talent. Alfredsson is a great mentor and having him with a developing potential star 2nd line C probably brings more value than a guy like Spezza who has proven to be able to get others to produce around him.

Both Spezza and Alfie bring the most out of the players that they play with so it makes sense to break them up so as to get more spread out scoring as opposed to just one line to shut down.

Michalek-Spezz-Silfverberg
Latendresse-Turris-Alfie
Regin-Zbad-Condra
Greening-Smith-Neil

That's a really solid four lines.
May not happen this year, but it would be great if it did.
It seems like they are grooming Zibanejad to be a winger...which his skillset is more suited to being anyway. I think Regin would centre that line if anything (which wouldn't be a bad thing if he can stay healthy).
