My $.02 is that Spezza is going to be dominant when he gets back. Get him in your 2nd half pools.
2 big reasons:
- Stoked and motivated from being on the sidelines while the team and his buddy Heater rip it up.
-The long layoff will do his back a world of good. It may be the key to him staying healthy through a good playoff run.
He doesn't need to go back with Heater to do it either. There was some suggestion that it would be insulting, or making him "earn" his minutes, if he isn't put with Heater right away. Hogwash. Alfie has been get hooked up with a never ending cast of lesser lights for most of his career, and hs been totally classy about it. I don't think Spezza will say boo. Outside of Alfie and Heater there is solid talent to let Spezza produce well. He may shoot more, which would be great because he has a great eye.
