3rd Annual "Spezza to CBJ" Summer Rumor

Spezza rumors again cropping up.....

http://www.torontosun.com/2011/06/22...s-chasin-jason


Sens fans seem think they would be able to get both Brass and Johansen along with the 8th, etc, for him....

Don't see any mention of The Johan there.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!

Spezza is not worth anywhere near that. Let Ottawa keep him - we've seen how they have done with him as their leader.

If the Carter trades fizzles out, another roster player from Philly that has been mentioned is Ville Leino. He's scored some clutch goals for them and shown to have very good hands. Not the best skater but I could see him being a solid addition to the CBJ if the rumors are true that he might be available. Perhaps something packaged up with Carle?

On the Sens boards they are almost all suggesting that he would need to be part of the deal.... There's a thread on there with reaction.

Nothing concrete on Johansen, rumor-wise.

Johan wont be traded, no matter the deal(Unless its just a crazy overpayment). I would have to guess that Howson looks at Johan as a future #1 and he would be much cheaper then dealing him for a 7 mil per year player, if he flourishes in the next year or 2 as expected.

If want to have a laugh, jump on over to the Sens boards and see what they want for Spezza. Brassard, Johansen, Filatov, Voracek and the 8th. Hell you might as well throw in Savard, Moore, and Goloubef as well.

Garrioch is getting lazy. He should have waited till after the free agency period dies before he pulls this rumor out of his ass.

I went over there, I also got a good laugh from what there minimum requirements are for trading Spezza. They would definitely be keeping him if that was the price because 30 teams, including Ottawa wouldn't make that trade to acquire a guy like Spezza.

Any deal involving Johansen should be shot down. I don't care the return

As much as I hate defending Garrioch, he makes it clear that he's only repeating what the Dispatch has reported. In fact, he opens with this:
"The Senators arenít dangling Jason Spezza in trade talks. But that doesnít mean other teams arenít asking about the star centre."

That's probably true.

Yeah, most of the requests are silly enough to not even warrant replying.

Latest Minimum seems to be Johansen, Voracek and the 8th.....

Ottawa isn't looking to trade Spezza. He's playing the best hockey of his career and is the ONLY offensive catalyst (for our forwards anyways) on the team. So yeah, if anybody wants him, it's going to be at a hefty price.

Hey didn't it take three years of rumors for us to land Vermy? I smell a pattern!

Its not like you guys have a plethora of guys to plug into a number one center role like Philly does... I understand the "overpayment" needed from our side, or a "hefty price" from your side.

I don't think there's a deal here that will leave everyone happy.

That's fine too. We aren't looking for a deal really, just having a discussion based on whatever rumours pop up.

That's probably true.
Which goes back to the whole deal where the one report said something to the effect of - Holmgren hasn't brought up Carter's name in discussions with the CBJ. Well, OK then, that could be true in the purest sense, but that doesn't mean Howson didn't bring him up and a discussion ensued.

My idea: Spezza for Nash, Johansen, Filatov, VorŠček, Moore and first round pick... maybe Sens fans will be satisfied

People believe what they want.

If fans like a trade rumor, then the source is legit.
If fans don't like a trade rumor, it's a lie.
