Spezza!!

Looks like he's going to be an UFA next year, considering the fact that he only signed an one year contract. I think we need to go after this guy next off season, and we'll be following our trend of signing local boys.

He will only have 3-4 years service next season. No way he will be a UFA.

Players generally don't sign with their former team's rivals.

Yup

My roommate and I laugh at how every UFA seems to be a leaf in waiting.


We snicker that all Free Agents are Leafs...they're just stolen by other teams when they sign for more money and then become overpaid because they wouldn't play for less money in Toronto

This is a false statement. Fans just LIKE to believe it because they seem to think players think the same way they do.

I still don't see why Spezza would instantly become a Leaf when becoming an UFA.

In all honesty a player may want to play with us, but to go out and say that it's a lock is retarded.

I'll bet he just roots for the Leafs like crazy.

Maybe that's why Toronto beat them last year

I can picture him right there beside Crosby and Thornton.

Might as well toss Niedermeyer in there. All players are Leafs....other teams just steal them away.

Jason is from the GTA. As a boy growing up in Toronto he probably supported the Maple Leafs. Hence, like any of us, one day throwing on the jersey of his child hood team in the NHL would be a dream come true. It's really not that hard to figure out.

Of course this doesn't mean he'd sign with us for that reason alone. Like most players he's going to chase the money, and that's fine. But Leaf Lander was just having fun, as the smilie pretty much showed.

Q. You've played hockey all your life. How long have you dreamed of this day?
A. Ever since I watched my first hockey game, I fell in love with the game. I was a Leaf and Red Wings fan. I liked Steve Yzerman. Mario Lemieux is my favourite player, but Steve Yzerman was someone I always liked, so I liked the Red Wings. But the Leafs were always my favourite team -- although that's changed (laughs).
