EDMONTON - Jason Spezza wasn’t exactly caught off guard.

The Senators’ captain heard the talk Monday he was being “quietly shopped” by the club in advance of Wednesday’s NHL trade deadline but he isn’t worried.

While Senators GM Bryan Murray denied he would trade Spezza, owner Eugene Melnyk told a CBC reporter on Parliament Hill the top centre isn’t being dealt.

“I’ve been around for a long time now and at this time of year there’s a lot of names that get thrown out there. It is something you grow to expect over time,” said Spezza Tuesday.
