Jason Spezza feels fine thank you.
The Senators centre has had no issues with the back issue that kept him out until the playoffs last spring and the knee surgery he had in June was minor by all standards. In fact he was on the ice all last month preparing for this season.

The Senators made the move after Heatley demanded to be traded out of Ottawa in 2009 but then used his no-trade clause to nix a deal that would have sent him to the Edmonton Oilers before $4 million bonus came due...
When you listen to statements made by Bryan Murray and Eugene Melnyk trying to explain why former Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson will play in Detroit something doesn't add up -- and we're not talking about the bankrupt city's bank account.
The GM says one thing the owner says something else.
On Saturday Melnyk was saying it would have been impossible to trade for...
