According to Best Sports News, as the Ottawa senators are creating a rebuilding a youth movement that is taking place in the organization, it is going to be very strange to make any such comments as saying that they are looking particularly for old players from the free agency. Nevertheless, there happen to be quite a few of the young guns who are there in the locker room, the Sens must have someone like a veteran who is very much in demand and can help and guide them.
Someone, who is favorite of the fans, can fit the bill as it can play the exact role that is needed by the senators. As Jason Spezza becomes a free agent who is very much unrestricted, the center who is 36 years of age is very much open to returning to the capital of Canada and this could be a fitting way pretty much for Spezza where he can spend the latter half of his remarkable career. Could Jason Spezza Be Planning A Return To The Ottawa Senators?
Pierre LeBrun from the TSN spoke to Spezza who said that things are very much in the rudimentary stage of the process but he also went on to say that he still shares a very good relationship with the people from Ottawa who are still there with him. Furthermore, he also added that on his list of considerations this is going to be very high for sure. He added that he left the club but on good terms. It is going to keep the door open for him. It is quite sure that there would be a lot of food for thought that will be there. But it is too early to say anything about the process as they are playing the waiting game and see how things pan out.
Five seasons have been spent by Spezza as an integral part of the Dallas Stars after, in 2014, he was being traded from the team of Ottawa. For this last season, he has made an appearance in 76 games in total, with the total tally 19 assists and eight goals. Nevertheless, according to the general manager of Dallas, Jim Nill mentioned about the fact that it is pretty much time that he has a move on of sorts.
As we all know that the career of Spezza began at the age of 19 as he was part of the Ottawa Senators as he scored a total of 21 points from the 33 games he played for them. In all of the 11 seasons as a part of the Senators, a humongous 687 points were tallied by him that included 436 assists.
The center who was very crafty in the way he played could fit the bill very nicely as part of the Senators who were moving forward. There was a possibility that he could slide to either the third or the fourth line by replacing the likes of great players like Oscar Lindberg and Chris Tierney.
Up until now, only three players are there over 30 years of age in the locker room of the Senators. It seems that these are not very big problems, but it can be mentioned that the youth of Senators can be lead by Spezza in the right way possible.
The time that he spent with Mark Stone has been greatly appreciated by Brady Tkachuk, hence there can be no reason as to why a young center cannot be taken by Spezza under his wings so that they can be helped and guided so that they move down the right path.
It is very much known to us that the Senators are pretty much tight with the money they have got. In that case, Spezza could also turn out to be a very cheap contract who would have got immense value right inside the team’s locker room.
