dont think the leafs have the pieces to land him, Bozak's value is low, Burke likely wont deal Kadri for him and Connolly just signed so likely a no go.

Just cant see how this works. Only way possible is if they expect Lombardi to come back and Garbo + Komi + picks / prospects go the other way

Man, this post has so much fail...

1) Your premise of what Spezza would fetch is based on faulty logic

2) Spezza will NEVER be moved? How many players actually stay on one team their entire career?

3) I'm assuming Dave Hodge and/or Spezza's family know more about the situation then you do.

Kessel fetched 2 firsts and a second. Keep that in mind, if Toronto knew those picks would be Seguin, Hamilton, and Knight, they wouldn't have done that deal, I can assure you.

Burke made that deal thinking the leafs could compete.

Spezza on The Blues is more likely. We're going for the Italian 5

You'd need more than Prospal to get Spezza.

Cool.

Don't think anything will happen though. His family likely just wants him to be a Leaf. Probably nothing to their "speculation".

You are aware that the trade was Kessel for 2 1st round picks and a second, not Seguin, Hamilton and Knight, right? If it were for those actual players Burke wouldn't have done the trade, so you can't really compare trade values.

I agree it would take Kadri, a 1st, and something else, not really sure what though.

How would people compare Spezza's value to Richards or Carter? Probably more than Carter but less than Richards?

As a Leaf fan, I'm more worried about Burke would be giving up than excited to possibly have Spezza.

But for my opinion i do not think it will happen and if it does it would be more then people would want to give up. Also senators and leafs are not the best trading partners
I, as a leaf fan, appreciate this comment. The leaf hate is deserved b/c most of us are blinded but it's insane that trolls come out for a legit rumor. Posted as a rumor, with the name of a legit source and no speculation of who would be involved or what it would take.

That being said, it won't happen. I may be alone here, but I wouldn't want Spezza as my #1 centre, no doubt he's an elite talent, but too soft and makes too much money.

I don't know why people are bashing Hodge for this. It's not like hes saying it will happen, and to be honest people in families say stuff all the time. Spezza's family almsot certainly grew up Leafs fans

ASK Tavares . He obviously likes the Islanders that's why he signed with them for such a good contract.

I'm a Leafs fan and I'd be dumb If I said I didn't want Tavares to be on the Leafs, but I know the chances of that happening were practically zero if the Islanders drafted him unless Burke pulled off a trade at the draft which he couldn't.

Us not being in the playoffs this long is the fault of the previous management and JFJ.
-----------

Also, Burke traded PICKS for Kessel and they turned out to be Seguin, Hamilton and..Knight because he thought the Leafs could compete. If the Leafs had drafted Seguin, Hamilton and Knight there is no chance in hell they would be traded for Kessel...and now you have to stick with the player that you have and move on from that.

For those saying Hodge is an idiot...
