My hockey pool is coming up... so I'd like to get your thoughts on Spezza.
I read in the paper today that he has been playing with Hossa in the preseason thus far. Do you expect that to stick through to the regular season? Or will Bonk once again centre Hossa?
Also, what type of numbers do you expect from him? There's no chance at all that he'll spend any part of the season in the AHL, is there?
Thanks in advance.
Last preseason they said he had incredible chemistry with Havlat, this year its Hossa. My guess is he'll float around. Once the lines start to get cold (as all lines do) Martin will juggle the lines a little to try to generate a spark.
There is no chance in hell that he gets sent down to the AHL. The sensational one is here to stay. I'd say he should get at least 50 points, while he could reach 65-70 and nobody would be surprised.
