Says to me he hasn't really progressed from last year. So why would be not be good enough last year, show no improvement at all for a full year, and then be good enough to center a top 2 line for us?

All I'm trying to say is he's not the answer. Our big guys (Michalek, Alfie, Turris) will need to step up
How do you know he didnt improve his play without even watching him.

His biggest weakness was his play without the puck and in the boards along with his defensive coverage last season, he improved greatly on that aspect.

So I guess Spezza has never really improved his play going by numbers, he was a PPG center 4-5 years ago and still is now, no improvment I guess.
