It's possible they'll reconsider after free agency plays out but it's starting to look like both the Senators and Spezza may have to reevaluate their stances for a deal to happen.
“In the new CBA, the way it’s set up, as an organization you only have so many chances,” said Dallas general manager Jim Nill. Pittsburgh said goodbye to Matt Niskanen and Brooks Orpik because of their up-and-coming blue-line group, which includes Olli Maatta, Derrick Pouliot, Scott Harrington, and Brian Dumoulin.
Their second group isn’t bad either, with Alex Pietrangelo and Jay Bouwmeester up top with David Backes, T. Would you counter with a penalty-killing group plus one player? Would you defend at all costs, or look for chances on the counterattack because St. A little more than 10 minutes later, Klingberg struck once more.
Again, he read that the time was right to join the attack.
In future seasons, Ottawa may be a better team when Alex Chiasson, prospects Alexander Guptill and Nick Paul, and a 2015 second-round pick, the bundle they received from Dallas, mature into NHL-ready contributors. Chiasson, a former Boston University Terrier, is a hot-and-cold shooter (seven goals in 40 games). I was really, really fortunate to play with him.”Spezza left his team in a bind by wanting out.
Guptill is a first-year pro in Binghamton, Ottawa’s AHL team. The Senators are not the Blackhawks, who’ve been humming even after trading Nick Leddy to the Islanders to become cap compliant. The Flyers didn’t have the depth on defense to overcome the loss of Kimmo Timonen because of blood clots. If Spezza wanted to stay in Ottawa, the small-market Senators would not have been in a good position to give the center the four-year, million extension he nabbed from the Stars. GM Bryan Murray knew he could not get equal value in return.
Spezza, however, used his no-trade clause to veto the deal. It was believed that Nashville was on Spezza's submitted list of teams to which he would not have accepted a trade.
They don’t have enough organizational depth to let him find his way and arrive a more complete player in the NHL. The area where the game is plump for innovation is during five-on-five play. He is similar to Erik Karlsson — a highly skilled, mobile, offensive-minded, right-shot defenseman. In Dallas’s 5-4 win over Ottawa on Tuesday, Klingberg scored his fifth and sixth goals of the season.
The coaching manual says nothing about it being a requirement to roll four lines. As Colton Sceviour handled the puck on the left side of the offensive zone, Klingberg supported the attack and found a high opening.
The Senators' pursuit of a deal, even one that Spezza wouldn't accept, is telling.
The market for the center, or at least the market willing to meet GM Bryan Murray's demands, isn't exactly percolating. Louis Blues, another team seeking forward help, are said to have moved on from their interest in Spezza.The Nashville Predators made one significant move Friday to reshape their franchise.
