For whatever reason the selection committee just didn't love what he was doing. Keep in mind he's a perennial disappointment with regard to injuries. I can only speak for my own votes but I think that the selection committee was simply tired of seeing him waste chances so they gave some young blood the higher seed. If Spezza is legit he'll find a way to overcome. And hey, there's always next year.
