The only centres in the league that are clearly above Spezza in value are Crosby, Malkin and Stamkos. Giroux could be there but he has to prove himself more first -- anyone can have one good year. Otherwise Spezza is just as proven and skilled if not moreso than any other centre out there.

Also I stand by the deal I proposed:

Zibanejad, 1st 2013 and Bishop for Yandle. It works for both teams.
Tavares is 22 and signed for 5 more years @ 5.5.
Giroux is 25, signed for 1 more year @ 3.75, and is an RFA after it expires.

Spezza is 29, signed for 2 more years @ 7, and has a history of back issues. The two younger, cheaper, healthier #1 centers just entering their prime are clearly more valuable assets.
