Until I hear otherwise Im going to assume the worst with Spezza.

I dont understand how people think its so unvelievable that somebody would know Spezza is out longterm before the media. Are they credible? Who knows.... But they havent been proven not to be...

I don't mind the "I heard x" posts. The morons that think they're funny by mocking the info and making up pool boy, dog walkers and 2nd cousins ex boyfriends grandma links that are supposed to be funny, but are actually stupid, are what bother me.

The problem with the "I heard X" is that there is no accountability, and depending on what is being said, might constitute libel.

It's a fine line.

Unless Spezza hurt his knee this morning I don't see how that rumor is true. Post-game Neil made reference to the fact that hopefully they get him back at some point soon. Why would he bother to make that comment if Spezza had suffered another injury? Pretty sure those two would be in close contract and Neil would know if something had happened while they were in Boston.

I have been reading this site long enough to know not to take many "insiders" seriously. Even the posters i recognize who have been right before I often have seen make claims that turn to be very far off the mark.

Look at the trade deadling thread or michalek thread , so many comments that were nowhere close to being accurate. As much fun as HF is at the end of the day it pretty much a gossip site , you just weed through all the non sense and find a few gems. If Spezza is is out or not , we cant change it , but what it does do , if he is healthy you now know even more posters who to ignore or found one who will be able to provide you with the occasional timbit of good info. win/win.

Well the Seantors are generally really quiet about injuries around playoff time, as most teams are. They likely don't want it getting out about Spezza's injury if it is true.

That's reasonable, but what if the poster supplies a source to you that you can verify?

Technically, that's the way anyone who wants to be a "source" here would go about doing it.

So yes: that would be ideal.

Spezza and Winter will probably arrive at the same time.

Unfortunately that's not how credibility works. What does it even matter anyway? Knowing if Spezza is out two days before it's announced by the club makes no difference. I understand leaked rumours because it's fun to speculate and talk about it but leaked injury information... what's the point? Maybe for poolies? I really don't get it.

Its a hockey message board. If somebody knows some "inside" information and they decide to post it. Good for them. I dont take it as Gospel. I dont make jokes about sisters cousins teachers friend having information. Take it for what it is. I completely put Spezza out of my mind for this season when he had that setback so until he is in practice I really dont care what I hearabout him.... from anyone.

Nobody has a god damn clue what his status is and if they claim to....they are bored and are just messing around.

The only news we have on Spezz right now is that he's skating which is a good thing. We saw how quickly Karlsson got back in the line up after beginning to skate and than only a few practices, the exact same thing can happen with Spezza.

I could still see him returning in a must win Game 6 or 7, and it happening without any real news or updates. This is playoff time people, expect the unexpected.

I don't think it can be too much longer. I dreamed he stepped out on the ice for game 3 and no one knew he was going to do it, so it was a big surprise.

That'd be cool.

Spezza and the team could be planning a return at some point in the series and not a soul outside the Sens organization would know about it.

Dream come true would be:

Sens split in Montreal,
Game 3, Spezza makes a surprise return and wins us the game - the shock factor lasts til game 4, we take a 3-1 series lead and finish the habs in 6 games.

How crazy would this be:

Spezza plans to return for game three, but it's a well kept secret. He doesn't come out for the pre-game skate. They don't start him, so he's not announced playing. He comes out of the tunnel and immediately goes on the ice, so nobody really sees him until he hits the ice. Totally unexpected.

Would never happen but that would be crazy.
