I believe it was 09 when Spezza came back from injury mid-late season and he played the best hockey of his career (and played us out of Tavares/Duchene territory). An encore would be wonderful.

Hopefully we can play at a decent record until he comes back. This short season hasn't done us many favors.

I don't see a ton of Ws away from home happening but if they can still get single points here and there, it could work. Michalek coming back hopefully ups the goal production. He's due for a streak. Offense can't get worse really. I'm liking our odds.

Mendes said 2-3 weeks away a couple days ago. Also talks about month away.

Let us hope he doesn't rush it. If he is back around the trade deadline that would be great!

When Spezza is back :

Michalek-Spezza-Alfredsson (present)
Zibanejad-Turris-Silfverberg (future)
Greening-Smith-Condra (work ethic line)
Regin-O'Brien-Neil (all over the ice line)
Daugavins

Maybe try to switch Alfie and Silfverberg

I'd rather put Spezza on a line that doesn't contribute nightly right now. Spezza will bring it when he gets back and keeping some balanced scoring could be the difference between having an easy line to shut-down ala Pizza line or having a great amount of depth in scoring.

Greening - Spezza - Zibanejad
Michalek - Smith - Alfredsson
Silfverberg - Turris - Condra
Daugavins/Regin - O'Brien - Neil

Soon

For the record, here were the lines from last game which I felt worked well (according to LWL).

MICHALEK-SMITH-ALFREDSSON (26.42%)
SILFVERBERG-TURRIS-GREENING (24.39%)
NEIL-ZIBANEJAD-STONE (15.04%)
CONDRA-REGIN-OBRIEN (14.63%)

If I had the opportunity, I would consider

MICHALEK-SPEZZA-ALFREDSSON
SILFVERBERG-TURRIS-GREENING
NEIL-SMITH-ZIBANEJAD
CONDRA-REGIN-OBRIEN

Jason Spezza won't be back in 2 weeks. Still some stiffness in the back. Could take another 4 weeks. #senators #RDS

Well...

It's too bad but I prefer he takes his time and comes back 100%. He would be a huge boost to our lineup but we are still doing alright so no need to rush back.

Disappointing, but I'd rather he be at 100% than come back early and **** up his back for next season.

He's making it up. That guy doesn't know squat. Alfie is going to go over and give Spezza a back-rub and it's all good.

Well, with that said...

MacLean says he has “no idea” about report claiming Spezza setback
An RDS report late Wednesday suggested that injured Ottawa Senators Jason Spezza could need more time than expected to return from his back disc surgery and could still be out for another month, but Senators coach Paul MacLean says he was unaware of anything new development in his recovery.

MONTREAL — An RDS report late Wednesday suggested that injured Ottawa Senators Jason Spezza could need more time than expected to return from his back disc surgery and could still be out for another month, but Senators coach Paul MacLean says he was unaware of anything new development in his recovery.

“I have no idea,” MacLean said following the Senators’ 4-3 shootout loss to the Montreal Canadiens. “I don’t know. Not that I know of. I don’t know anything about that. I was here all day, just like (the media).”

Spezza had returned to skating to light skating in recent weeks – away from his teammates – and appeared to be on track to get back into the lineup, perhaps before the end of March.

However, the report by RDS’ Renaud Lavoie suggests that Spezza is dealing with “some stiffness” in his back, slowing his recovery.

The recovery from back disc surgery is typically in the six-to-eight week range. Spezza is currently in week six, but if he’s sidelined for another four weeks, he wouldn’t be ready until perhaps the final two weeks of the season.

^ Hmm, I wonder if this is a matter of deep-digging sports journalism, or just a lazy writer meeting his daily quota...? If Spezza denies it, RDS can always cite "unnamed sources" for the rumor and wash their hands of it.

Originally no, but recent reports suggested he was on track to be.

so last week renaud reports that he's skating, prompting everyone to question if he's ahead of schedule. Maclean says no.

this week renaud reports that he's behind schedule. Maclean says no.

sounds to me like the media is just reading too much into everything.

So when is Spezza expected to come back? End of March? Early April?

A week ago, Mendes said he could be back in 2-3 weeks and Dreger said a month.

Who knows at this point?

I suspect that the better we are doing, the longer we will wait before putting Spezza back in the lineup (which is also what we are doing with Andersson).

Seems like it's all speculation to me.
