Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,
Some Ottawa fans want Spezza traded before his no-movement clause kicks in July 1. They say he’s lazy. They say he doesn’t backcheck. They say he doesn’t become “engaged” in the play. They place blame for the Senators’ early playoff elimination squarely on his shoulders.
They are using Spezza as their scapegoat.
On locker cleanout day, when someone wondered if he’s getting tired of being the lightning rod for criticism of this team, Spezza did not shake off the talk as he has in the past.
“Yeah, a little bit,” he said. “But there’s not much you can do, and there’s not much to really get into.
“It’s definitely trying at times.”
