Now that we have confirmation from Sens GM Bryan Murray, we can all officially begin to prepare ourselves for the inevitable Jason Spezza trade that will be coming sometime in the next few weeks.
Jason Spezza has been a great player for this hockey team and great representative of this city and this organization. Spezza has his reasons for wanting to move on just as the organization has its own justification for why this move makes sense. Always a polarizing presence in the team’s lineup, there has never been any doubt about his offensive abilities and his passion for the game of hockey.
The Ottawa Senators are certainly going to miss Jason Spezza.
But as Spezza gets ready to start a new chapter in his hockey career and the Senators begin to prepare for life after Jason, I thought we should have a little fun with this. As our next SensChirp contest, we are going to play- “Predict the Jason Spezza Trade”.
It’s pretty simple and if you’ve read the comment section the last little while, you’ll know the readers on this site have been doing it for the last few weeks anyway. So I figured we should make it a little more official. Except it’s not as simple as saying where he’ll end up. You entry must answer the following questions;
- What team will Spezza be traded to?
- On what date will Spezza be traded?
- Details of the trade (This must include ALL players/prospects and draft picks involved in the deal, with the year of draft picks included)
All entries must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org before 10:00 PM on Friday, June 13, 2014 (Jason Spezza’s birthday).
We have a great Wisers Gift Pack lined up courtesy of our good friend @Wisers_Ottawa, who reminds us that you must be legal drinking age to enter and to please enjoy responsibly. If there are multiple winners, we’ll do a draw from all the correct responses.
I encourage everyone to share their entries in the comment section too, unless of course you have a real good scoop on this one. Good luck everyone!
