EDMONTON - Jason Spezza shouldn't be concerned.

The rumour mill shifted into high gear Monday when two reports surfaced the Senators were “quietly” shopping captain Spezza and could move him before Wednesday’s deadline.

GM Bryan Murray wasn’t amused because in today’s day and age the talk quickly went viral on twitter. He wouldn’t issue a categorical denial because you never-say-never but it’s not happening.

Ideally, the Senators would like to put some talent around Spezza rather than take him out of the mix. Murray didn’t like to even have to address the matter but felt he had to say something.
