Our friend Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun wrote that the Sens are peddling veteran center Jason Spezza and that he would waive his no trade clause for 10 teams, including the Panthers. Spezza is the protoypical center that Panthers GM Dale Tallon craves at 6-foot-3 with eight seasons of 20 or more goals, including last year when he notched 23 goals and 43 assists in 75 games. He was a solid 54 percent successful on faceoffs, however his plus-minus was an awful minus-26 which ranked 876th out of 886 players.
Would Sens C Spezza fit Panthers' needs?
