Sens Underground Forums > Spezza left off team Canada orientation camp roster

He could still be added to the Olympic roster, but last 2 Olympics teams were made entirely of guys invited to the camp. Hopefully this fires him up, but I doubt it.

I still think there's some un-tapped potential in Spezza. I doubt this is what spurs him to greatness, but in conjunction with being removed from Heatley, it might spur him to put in a little extra effort. Ultimately, I don't think he has any business being on that team and it can only help for him to understand that. Heatley on the other hand -- I also doubt he makes the cut unless he puts in an incredible first half next season. But getting an invite is certainly enough to keep him complacent.

I'm on the fence. He does have enormous talent, but he's also been making the same lazy mistakes going back to Bingo. Ottawa needs to trade Heatley and they need to sign or trade for someone to inject life into the team. We can't expect Spezza to change when the environment he plays in stays the same.
