PHILADELPHIA -- Turns out the City of Brotherly Love wasn't the right location to part ways with Jason Spezza.

Senators GM Bryan Murray stood his ground and, as a result, the club's disgruntled captain didn't go anywhere after the club spent nearly two months trying to get a trade in place this weekend.

Unable to get a deal done with the St. Louis Blues when push came to shove in the hours before the NHL entry draft, the Senators held on to their top centre and as a result didn't get a top pick.
