Mike Babcock Demotes Jason Spezza?

"Training camp and preseason has just begun and it seems Toronto Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock might be already pushing the buttons of one veteran player. We heard some weird sound bites from Babcock the other day in regards to Jason Spezza, making it sound like he wasn't sure there was a match for the team and player. Friday morning at practice, Babcock made a lineup change with Spezza that had some people scratching their head.Spezza found himself on the right wing while Frederik Gauthier was his center. It's an interesting decision considering that Spezza is veteran center who won 58% of his faceoffs last year and has never been under 50% in his career. We'll wait to see what Babcock's explanation is."
