I believe they signed him early due to Seattle for exposure purposes

But with his retirement threat Seattle wont touch him

Anyways glad hes coming back

Glad to have him back but he deserves a cup, not to lose in the 1st round with these overpaid bums

Spezza and Holl are the two true bargains on that Leafs team. They could use as many as they can at the moment.

not surprised, just disappointed that he likely won't get a cup in his career with the leafs.
however, if he wants to play here, he can. i aint one to judge.

That's awesome! It shows they appreciate Spezza, and he still has a little left in the tank. (The fact that he fulfills the 27/54 requirement makes this even better.)

Hopefully this time he doesn't cry and pout when Toronto throws him on waivers. Easy way to lose respect for a player (unless you're a Toronto fan)

great 4th C, 30 points last year, as long as he can put up another 30 and be good defensively this is awesome.

Even if you hate the Leafs... you simply can't deny that this is an outstanding contract yet again. Jason, you have shown what it truly means to be a player who simply wants his hometown team to win.

Good contract, and obviously not surprising whatsoever. Spezza likes living in Toronto, I’m sure a large part is keeping his family in one place. He’s just playing because he loves playing hockey, regardless of money or whether his team wins or loses. Too bad that another great player is going to retire without a cup ring.
