Jason Spezza got a bit slimmer in the off-season.
"I'm just trying to get better, trying to adapt with the times," Spezza said. "The game is going in a certain direction and you don't want to get left behind. I think I have a lot of good, productive years ahead of me, so I want to make changes." He is motivated for success this season and in the playoffs, so another 60-point campaign should be in the cards for the 33-year-old center. Sep 28 - 5:45 PM

"We feel like we're in a bit of a window here, we have to try to win," Spezza said.

And as players, we have to recognize that we have a good team and you can't take anything for granted. It's hard to keep good teams together."
