I still haven't fully decided how I feel about a Spezza trade. I don't want to lose his skill set for prospects and picks. We're going to need a legitimate player coming back, to go along with the picks & prospects. We might also have to take back a salary dump, so Melnyk's (un)willingness to spend might factor into this.
Who knows... chances are, he's gone. I don't like it, but I'll get used to it. Just like I did with what's-his-name.
