Spezza Sells His Crib

It's been nearly a month since Jason Spezza was dealt, and as in all endings, there are loose ends to tie up. The former Senator is selling his west end mansion, so if you've got an extra 1.7 million laying around, it can be yours. If you want to see inside click here.

Summer Shopping

Via @Senators 
For all 8 of you, err I mean 6? I mean 2? Well whoever wanted a David Legwand or Alex Chiasson jersey, your dreams have now come true. They are available for purchase in the Sens Store. Very mildly interesting to note that Spezza and Chiasson, who of course were traded for each other, will now wear the same number this season. Let the rush for Legwand and Chiasson jerseys commence.

David Legwand Inks 2 Year Deal With Sens

The Ottawa Senators have signed free agent David Legwand to a 2 year, 6 million dollar deal according to numerous reports. The 33 year old veteran had an impressive 51 points last year and for 3 million, it's hard to hate on that. He does happen to play centre as well, so is this the centre that Bryan Murray was talking about a couple of days ago? You would think not since he seemed to indicate that player was coming via trade.

Nevertheless, it's a decent signing for the price for a team that desperately needs some offensive upgrades after losing Ales Hemsky and Jason Spezza this week. The Sens landed the centre, who had deals on the table with multiple teams. Does this mean that Ottawa is back to being a desirable UFA destination? Probably a bit premature to go that far, but at least we got a decent NHL vet, at a decent price. Which as we all know, is VERY important to this organization.

Do you like the signing?

Sens Retain Michalek? Sens Retain Michlaek.

In a surprising move, the Sens have resigned UFA Milan Michalek to a 3 year, 12 million dollar deal. The deal came to be after Ottawa lost out on Benoit Pouliot to Edmonton earlier in the day. I don't really get the point of keeping him to be honest, seems like a waste of money. In this league you need to be rebuilding or competing, sure looks like we will be neither next year. Another year for Sens fans in limbo.

Jason Spezza Dealt To Dallas For Spare Parts

For the second straight year, the Ottawa Senators have lost their captain, with the long Jason Spezza saga coming to an end minutes ago. Spezza was dealt to the Dallas Stars for an underwhelming return that included Alex Chiasson, Alex Guptill, Nicholas Paul and the Stars 2015 2nd round pick. Ya I've never heard of any of those guys either.

According to Hockey Prospectus, the Sens got the Stars seventh and ninth best prospects. That's what we got essentially for an elite point per game in his career first line centre. This is good news for Spezza, who you will recall is a huge Dallas Cowboys fan.

Thoughts on the deal?
