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.
