I'm a Spezza fan, and you have to give credit where it's due. We all endure negative post after negative post about his play when things are bad, but when he has a great night, or makes a game winning play, the critics are silent.
Come say good game, he plays for your team. Presumably if you can diss him you can give props to right?
Even though Spezza had an awesome game, lets not get carried away. He has been extremely inconsistent and near invisible past 10 or so games. He needs to pull a string of them together.
Heck, Kovalev scored 4 goals after every 20 or so games.
The thing is, he's hasn't been particularly good the last however many games, and yet he's still been producing points (ie. goals have been scored by the Senators and he's been involved in those goals).
This team without Spezza is battling with Columbus right now for last in the league.
Spezza had a good game. Why do you guys need to argue anything further? He played as a first line center is expected to play.
Because some felt the need to mention ("suck it Spezza 'haters'" would be the best description I could use) anyone who has ever been critical of Spezza and I pointed out it was a joke to say something like that after 1 good game where Spezza worked hard all night.
