According to a TSN report, Ottawa Senators center Jason Spezza "wouldn't object" to a trade, Senators GM Bryan Murray told reporters Monday.

"He said he wouldn't object to it," Murray said. "He didn't come in and say, 'I have to be traded.' He didn't object to the fact that maybe it's time -- the way (he's) been received -- now maybe it's time."

Spezza has been the subject of intense trade rumors since the Senators were ousted from the Stanley Cup Playoffs in the first round.

Spezza inked a seven-year, $49 contract extension in 2007 and has a no-trade clause that kicks in on July 1. He has played entire his career with the Senators since being taken with the No. 2 pick in the first round by the team in 2001.
Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
