I'm not quite sure where this came from, out of nowhere seemingly, but Dave Hodge isn't exactly someone who says things just to say him. The veteran broadcaster is usually quite credible, so when he tweeted this I have to think he at least believes it to be true. My take: I can't see Spezza being traded anywhere, especially to the hated Maple Leafs, no matter what they were to offer ( do they even have any attractive assets?).
For a team extremely light on scoring, trading away their #1 point producer would be ridiculous.
