    What to do with Spezza?

    Early in the season i traded Stamkos and Versteeg for Spezza. And hes been absolutely horrible for me. So ive gotten over that i did a bad trade but what do i do with Spezza?

    Literally no one wants him i tried him straight up for Bobby ryan, i tried him and Brown for Marleau. And no one wants to trade.

    What should i do with him? And did anyone else trade him? If so for who?

    • Yeah, I'm in the same boat. I got him in a trade that included me giving up Getzlaf because I needed more goals than assists on my team, and Spezza always gets over 30 while Getz never hits 30. Needless to say, so far not so much working out.

      I don't think there's anything you can do with him right now. He's essentially untradable at this point (a guy wouldn't even give me the struggling AND injured Staal for him last week), but I know if I dropped him he'd score 6G and 8A the first week!

      Just stay the course. Remember, there's still 3/4 of the season left, the guy is WAY too talented to not still get to at least 70 points.

    • I have him as well. I am waiting it out for a while and hope he gets hot, so maybe I can trade him (OR he might actually contribute something to my team).

    • i've got him too, drafted. wait it out, be patient. i'm not expecting the world, but he should have 75 points by year end. that means 63 points over the next 60 games. not bad. just look at eric staal last year, 15 points in the first 25 games. then 60 over the next 57 games.
