Mr. D S Cherry is always saying this: In a game, Spezza is at his best when he is shooting the puck at the net.

Reasons not to have SPezza in Detroit:

1. Grossly overpaid
2. Good regular season stats but poor playoff performer. He's basically a s***tier, even less physical version of Joe THornton
3. No Heart
4. No Defensive Ability
5. 5 years left on his insane deal
6. Huge wuss - everyone on this site complains that the Wings are soft...this guy would make us WAY softer

people have such short memories. yea, he was schooled by Crosby last series, but Spezza has 46 points in 46 playoffs games in his career. How is that a poor playoff performer. Thornton has 65 points in 91 playoff games. Datsyuk has 76 points in 110 games.

i agree with your other points though

I'm not really sure why anyone would look to acquire Jason Spezza and pay him 7M per year when Kovalchuk is going to be available, and likely just a little more expensive. He's roughly the same age, a better goal scorer, less injury prone, and has proven he can do more with less. That's what would be going through my head if I was a GM.

Unfortunately Kovy is going to demand a minimum of 8 mil. I'm betting he wants Crosby/Malkin/Ovi money.

Noone on this board cares if you can score 90 points and youre soft. Its the bottom 6 who don't put up points and are soft that people here don't like. That being said Savard is the same type of player, willing to waive his no trade clause to Detroit and would be much better

If that deal falls through, I'd say Columbus got raped on that one. Especially if Spezza continues his annual ice-cold streaks.


playing with a positive hard working young kid like rick nash may help with spezza's "give a f*** factor". feeding him passes and finding your name in the assist column may prompt him to repeat his performance.

this is until he skates up the ice in his BJ's uniform with 100% intent on turning the puck over and get's KRONWALLED! the jackets will be a better team if he goes there though.
