Ummm did anyone say Spezza would not be effective?

And I disagree with you about EK. People don't realize just how hard it is to strengthen and be NHL ready after an Achilles injury. It's not easy and it's not something fun to come back to and be limited in skating. Everything you are taught in hockey works when you have confidence in your abilities. Right now, EK is looking up to the sky wondering why he can't do what he could before. It's because he's limited in skating.

But nonetheless, after a long offseason of building strength, he might be better than he ever was. I saw it happen to a lot of athletes in my life.
