TSN reports Jason Spezza may be traded; Sportsnet reports Phaneuf’s on the move

Cue the, "Story blowing up this morning" title for this one from TSN:

The captain of the Ottawa Senators could be on the move this off-season.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, Jason Spezza is "very much in play on the NHL trade market."

McKenzie says the rumors stem in part from Spezza's exit interview with the Senators this season when he reportedly informed Ottawa ownership that he may look favorably on a move.

The 30-year-old had 23 goals and 43 assists for 66 points in 75 games played this season.

Spezza, who has played his entire 12-year career in the nation's capital, has a year left on his seven-year, $49 million contract signed ahead of the 2008-09 season.

And Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos countered with the following:

Ontario captains on the way out soon?  Independent sources say both #Sens and #Leafs shopping  Spezza/ Phaneuf  to west conf #NHL teams

...

Hearing lots of interest in #Leafs Phaneuf @ right price. Some clubs tell me they value him btw 5m -6m, meaning Tor must cover remaining $.

Update: Cue the video:
