Spezza still getting no respect

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=651799

Hahaha...some notable names ahead of Spezza:

Corey Perry
Daniel Sedin
James Neal
Jonathan Toews
Alex Ovechkin
Rick Nash
John Tavares
Henrik Sedin
Zach Parise
Scott Hartnell
Patrick Kane
Phil Kessel
Patrick Sharp
Tyler Seguin

Why is Spezza out of the top 10 anyway?

Small-market Canadian team is unimportant to the NHL.

Who cares what some random NHL.com writer things about fantasy rankings? Last I checked the Sens are in the business of winning hockey games, not helping out in you're roto pick'em.

This isn't about top players in the NHL. This is about fantasy points. James Neal is above Pavel Datsyuk because he is expected to get alot of points playing with Crosby or Malkin.

There would be alot more wrong with that, otherwise than just having Spezza at 21. Datsyuk?

It's not just this writer though -- it's everywhere. I was just using this article as the most recent example of Spezza getting 'disrespected'.

The guy is a legit top 10 centre (possibly forward) in the league but he's never ever treated that way (even by his own fanbase).

Thats fine. I can't speak for many other lists, but I see alot of elite players getting disrespected here, in favor of Scotty Hartnell playing with Claude Giroux.

But seriously who cares what media thinks?

Ottawa Player's tend to get little love or respect imo especially Spezza....EK is right there as well, case in point the backlash from EK winning the Norris, if EK played in a southern market the NHL would be pumping his tires to no end and i imagine alot more non sens fans would love the guy!

Boo-hoo.

Karlsson also gets disrespected by some Sens fans. Some would even slot Silfverberg ahead of him in line for the captaincy.

We should pass around a box of kleenex and cry this one out.

Who cares?

Neither of them are in line for the captaincy.

So you're taking something completely out of context, and that doesn't actually agree with what you were inferring, to try and prove some kind of point that has nothing to do with the topic?

From a fantasy perspective, Ottawa's usually been a pretty terrible bet.
So that's understandable.

No, but I missed you, too, CPM.

Or perhaps you aren't familiar with how a "line" works?

Depends on the player and how deep your league is really.

For example, Karlsson last season was probably one of, if not the most valuable players in fantasy last year because of the amount of points he got while taking up a defenseman slot, when compared to the next best option.

Spezza was also great, especially if your league had a faceoffs won stat category (more than any other player in the league), this because he's so often ignored and you can pick him up in the middle rounds.

It just depends on the situation, like most players in fantasy leagues.

I, quite literally, could not possibly care any less about what anyone in the media thinks about any of our players, management, team, etc.

The sens probably have one of the best young group of players in the NHL and is an up and coming team. Alot of people seem to also forget all of the prospects you guys have. Spezza has fallen off the map since the 2010-11 season and even after the great year he put up last year I doubt he'll ever be regarded as one of the best forwards in the game. Not even a sens fan btw.

Something else to consider, is that not only are these fantasy rankings, but centermen are easier to obtain in a pool, meaning that some of the wingers on that list will jump ahead.

There's a drop off in quality wingers when picking for a pool, where as depending on the depth of the pool, there are usually a few quality centermen left.
