Lots of praise from all press sources about how he handled himself in this interview. Spezza's stock just went up in NHL circles big time. Hopefully fans realize how great of a player and person he is as well.

Spezza's stock went up? Why would you say that?

Personality wise he is getting great praise from media on the way he handled himself in this interview.

That should quiet the trade speculation resulting from the sudden rise in Spezza's stock. Thank goodness.

Me (Spezza) and Bryan have talked since then. Probably our conversation should have stayed between us, and we probably wouldn’t even be talking here today. But it happened. And it’s a reality. For me, I didn’t feel like I had to respond to anything.


Touché. Although it made for some great trade ideas here!

This Spezza love-in smells vaguely familiar.

Really strong interview, but he's always been really good at talking the talk, it's time for him to walk the walk. Or just put up mad points, either way.

Just don't make him laugh. His stock falls pretty quickly once the giggling starts. Great Spezza Interview - Page 2 601927

This is the year of Spezza:

- He's had a long off-season to rest his back
- His new daughter (and young marriage) should be enough to mature him from a boy into a man; take on responsibility
- His chemistry with Regin was amazing come the end of last season; Regin has a lot to prove
- He's got one of the best PMDs in the league feeding him the puck
- Kovalev won't retire on a statistically bad note (PP points)
- He's got a lot of people to prove wrong in this city

I think Spezza eclipses 90 points this season.

That's not going to be enough. He had 7 points in 6 games in the playoffs and got booed. He was criticized heavily in 2007-2008 even though he put up a career-high 92 points and was 6th in league scoring (one pace to be 3rd behind OV and Malkin).

I think that he gets more than his due share of fan criticism, but it's not about his production. He got booed for the incident with Volchenkov, and deservedly so. There has to be more battle in him.

Talk is cheap.

I don't really want to criticize Bryan Murray - because what he's done here is excellent - but that is a direct statement from Jason Spezza to Murray saying when I tell you something, you keep it to yourself old man. Good for Spezza.

I've been saying this for a while, but I really do feel when that CTV chick did the interview with Spezza, he was just frustrated cuz Murray had made some details public about the season ending discussion. Murray first said it on Team 1200 with York and Lloyd. And if I'm not mistaken, CTV globe media owns Team 1200. So there ya go Great Spezza Interview - Page 2 555492

As I posted earlier, this puts into question what *really* happened last summer. Heatley's camp denies being the leak, and I really can't think of a good reason for them to do so, other than to really screw the organization (that disclosure put them in a tough spot, they could not deal him before the so-called bonus payment, they had to take on Cheechoo's $6M, the return was less than stellar).

He's a lot like Thornton in that regard. I dunno, if he ups his compete level and plays with a little fire under him he won't be criticized as heavily.

Hey I'm just stating what we all already know.

There is no reason why this team couldn't be top-five offensively in the East this year. We'll likely be letting in a lot of goals this year without Volch or Sutton but with the D we have the puck won't be in our zone for long.
