Jason Spezza's first year as the Senators captain has turned into a nightmare.

Will there even be a second?

The Ottawa centre will enter the final season of his contract in October, but it seems management has a decision to make in the months leading up to it.

Will there be a concerted effort to get Spezza inked to another deal? If he hits the open market July 1, 2015, there should be a line up of teams willing to offer him a long term, big money pact. Is GM Bryan Murray prepared to give him the length of contact the 30-year-old will likely command?
