OTTAWA, CANADA (The Spread) – Jason Spezza is rumored to be on the move and according to a recent report, two teams are serious about acquiring the current Ottawa Senator.

Ottawa GM Bryan Murray said that two teams have made serious offers for Spezza according to the Ottawa Sun. Sources tell the Sun that the two teams are believed to be the St. Louis Blues and the Anaheim Ducks.

"There are certain teams that have called, shown some interest and discussing the possibility, but that's about it," said Murray. "All we do in our business is investigate. When there is a request by a player you investigate possibilities, talk about it, negotiate. And when you negotiate it sometimes takes a week, and not very often it's one phone call, it's many. It appears in this case it will be many."

Less than a week ago Spezza asked the Senators to trade him and it would appear as though his general manager is honoring his captain’s request.

"I don't want to trade the guy, really, and I know I won't get the value, in all likelihood that I should get for him," Murray told the Ottawa Citizen. "But I think that Jason feels maybe there's a change that he would like to have happen, and if that's the case we'll try to do what we can."

The Ducks and Senators have dealt before with each other, including the Bobby Ryan for Jakob Silfverberg trade. But the Blues have plenty of good young players to offer Ottawa and would like a number two center behind David Backes. So while Anaheim might be the most logical fit, St. Louis’ GM Doug Armstrong could get aggressive. He’s well aware that the Blues’ window to win remains wide open at the moment.
