This is just something we're going to have to deal with. There are going to be injuries to this team. I believe that they will be fine.

I'm guessing surgery will be required.

I guess we maxed out our good luck karma last year if the worst case scenario is true with Spezza. I ain't even mad though because we're only 2/3 into our rebuild.

I would bring up Da Costa and flank him with either Guy, Milan, or Greening to do the dirty work.

Tests came in: He's ruptured 3 discs in his back, has a pig heart, and turns into a werewolf during a full moon.

Trade Spezza.

Just give him some deer antler spray and he's ready to go.

I love all this "don't worry, we're only in year two of our rebuild" talk.

Where on earth did that appeasement come from?? While it's certainly true that Ottawa's roster resembles more of a team in rebuild you NEVER rest on your laurels and write off a season because "we're in a rebuild". Not saying they have to trade assets for temp players either but I certainly hope the team's management doesn't have the same type of passive attitude that some in the fan base do.

You try to win all the time. You never stop trying to win. Nobody else cares about your team's nice, neat little rebuilb plan with it's clean schedule outlining exactly how many years it will take to be great. We'll see in a couple of years if Edmonton is happy with that strategy. The Sens might have gone pretty far last year if they'd got past New York. And that was technically "year one" of the rebuild.

Once again you try to win ALL the time and NEVER rely on paper tigers to dictate your team's progress. I want the team to build with youth and keep their picks. But I CERTAINLY don't want to write off the loss of our #1 center as no big deal because we're in the middle of some perceived rebuild.

There is no tomorrow. There is no rebuild. Win whenever and wherever you can.

But random internet forum poster says he was at the airport to go see a specialist/have surgery/out for life. Surely someone wouldn't make something up on the internet?

The Sun confirmed Spezza, who has had back problems before, was in Toronto getting evaluated by doctors. He was spotted at the Ottawa airport Tuesday night catching a flight, but returned to the city Wednesday morning.
Not made up that he left Ottawa to be evaluated by doctors.

"Upper-body" is usually code for concussion.

Based on the fact that he's had back problems before and not much else...

...but you're probably right.
