Someone has to say it so I will.
Ottawa would have more wins today if you replaced Spezza with Langkow, Not only is he one of the best clutch players he does all the little things in games that get wins...Spezza is not that kind of player.

Actually, when you are winning, that is when you make the calls to the basement dwellers, and offer to "help them out" and try to fleece them. Dealing from a position of strength is what you always want to do, and trying to make a deal when you are in the basement is just asking for a fleecing.

Enough with this. Calgary doesn't want Spezza because he doesn't fit into our style of system and we have players that are a giveaway machine and the Sens don't want Regehr because they have enough defensive defencemen, even if they aren't even close to Regehr.

I like Langkow and all, but come on you can't even compare him with Spezza. Spezza is an elite #1 center with 100 points potential, Langkow is a 1b/2a center. Langkow is better defensively and has more grit, but what Spezza brings offensively >>>>> Langkows intangibles.

It's pretty much like a Drury vs. Crosby comparison, who would you rather have?

I hope this thread ends soon b/c it seems like the original poster has no idea of each teams needs.

Calgary probably has enough offensive talent up front.
Ottawa has enough defensive defensemen.

But whatever. Hey listen, instead of heading to Whistler for skiing or chilling out along the ocean front, let's all flame each other senslessly.
