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.
But the Devils aren't looking to get older just younger, we have some good d prospects and want young talent not 30+ centers, although I do like Spezza and found it hard to believe he is already 30, thought he was like 28 or something
