Spezza's having an off year and most want him gone. I don't get it. Players are allowed to have off years. I don't think it's in Ottawa's best interest to trade him. He's a 25 year old, ppg, 90 point, number one center in the league. Those kinds of players don't grow on trees. The only way Spezza gets moved is if he asks for a trade or if Ottawa decides to blow the whole thing up and start from scratch. Even then, the bounty he'd return would be huge. Think prospects, young players, and draft picks. And that doesn't include the huge cap space relief Ottawa would gain from the deal.

How about you trade your other overpaid guys like Smith and Fisher.

i doubt Murray's job is on the line and even if he makes a move he wont make a crappy move like this crap prosposal.

He will probably trade a secondary guy first, and big trades like this nvr happen

I respectfully suggest to my brothers in Ottawa that, due to character issues, despite his great talent, Spezza is exactly the type of player that a team should not sign to a long term $7 million contract with a NMC soon to kick in. IMO the burden of contract greatly lessens his trade value, but he does have trade value.

However, it makes no sense to trade Spezza in order to bail out the Rangers from the Gomez and Rozsival contracts. At least, Spezza has the talent to justify his contract. The same cannot be said of Gomez, or Rozsival.

He'll garner a few first rounder picks / prospects drafted in the first round and a roster player probably.

Except that trading Spezza doesn't get Ottawa any closer to the playoffs and in fact wastes a year since the sens have to tank just to draft Spezza's replacement. If Murray's job is really on the line he should find a way to dump those ridiculous contracts he gave his boys Fisher and Kelly to clear up room for an impact player.

Gomez - brutal contract
Rozsival - brutal contract, brutal player
Prucha - brutal player
Dawes - no value
picks -

for

Spezza - top 10 centerman
Vermette - good 2/3rd line versatile forward
Lee - potential top 4 defenceman

GREAT TRADE! WOULD TRADE AGAIN! A++++++

Yes, trading quality players for overpaid players whose values have decreased heavily makes complete sense.

If the Sens don't want a guy who can score 92 points in 76 games, I'm sure there'd be room for him on the Flames roster.

Remember 2 years back, that article in paper or w/e it was

SHOULD OTTAWA TRADE ALFREDSSON TO VANCOUVER FOR MORRISON?

It made me laugh so hard as a Canuck fan, oh man.

Brutal, just truly BRUTAL! Gomez is a much weaker center than Spezza. Rozsival is way overpaid for the next 4 years, Prucha is playing terribly, Dawes is okay, and the picks won't mean much. That package for just Spezza wouldn't even be enough.

Keep dreaming!

he will probably fetch you 1 roster player, 1 good prospect. and a couple of draft picks.
