Well, you make it sound like he can't be resigned. He is a family man now, so if you make him comfortable in your city and your organization, there is a very good chance to resign him. Not to mention he is still producing with linemates that, needless to say, are not NHL top 6ers for the most part, that shows how much skill he still has, and that he makes his linemates better. And he is not 'getting pretty old', he is 30. 30. He easily has several more very good years left in him, especially if you give him decent linemates. You know who is old? Guys like Alfredsson, Selanne, etc, who are more than a decade older than Spezza, and still producing. This is not a 40 year old we're talking about here.
