Jason Spezza says he's surrounded by guys who could score 50 goals this season -- including Dany Heatley, Martin Havlat and Daniel Alfredsson, -- but he's not putting himself in that group.

"I believe there could be a bunch of guys in this league who score 50 and I think you're going to have a bunch of guys who are above 100 points," said Spezza.

"We could have three guys on this team who score 50. That's good for the league and that's what you want to see."

THIS 'N' THAT: Senators D Andrej Meszaros has impressed coach Bryan Murray. Under normal circumstances Meszaros might be a candidate for rookie of the year, but with guys named Alexander Ovechkin (Washington) and Sidney Crosby (Pittsburgh) also on the ballot, it's going to be a little difficult to win the award. "Meszaros has shown he's going to be a guy who can improve," said Murray ... Spezza said he wasn't going to join G Ray Emery and W Brian McGrattan at a tattoo shop on Dalhousie St. yesterday. "When I take off this shirt, about the only thing anybody wants me to do is put this shirt back on," said Spezza. "This is not a body that needs artwork. I can't walk around in the summer like Emery and (McGrattan) with no shirt on."
