Marc Savard On The Trade Market?


Recommended Posts

Kind of weird...Eventhough Bergeron's back in form, they've picked Ryder, young guys like Lucic and Krejci are developping fast, i really don't understand this. It's not like he was underachieving for someone with his salary. He's a top 10 center in this league..

Edit: The only reason i can think about, is that they really want a top d-man or goalie..

There has to be more to this story though.

There is no way they are close to being over the cap (they have one of the cheapest (SCROOGE) GM/staff) so that can't be it.

you'd think they would at least start the season (couple months maybe) before even thinking about such a thing. :mellow:

actually, their salary committments for the 08-09 season brings them right up to the cap: $56,688,333

so if they're not dumping salary what are they doing? why 'rebuild' if they haven't accomplished anything yet?!

oh OK thanks for the info. I used to work with a Bruins fan that would always say how cheap his team was. :P

Boy, if we had room on our roster I'd say bring him here.

He'd be a great addition.

If it is a defensemen they are looking for I'd be willing to part with practically anyone barring our top three to grab Savard. I would even be traded to toss Higgins in the mix although I would prefer someone else.

Nevertheless the talked about deal currently has Savard heading to Vancouver for Bieksa, Edler and possibly Krajicek or a first. Of course please direct your eyes to my sig for the source. :P

Is this legitimate? Savard has been a phenomenal assist producer in the past few seasons. Like, seriously, one of the best. He was leading the league in assists last year for a good portion of the season if I recall correctly, and he doesn't shy away from the gritty stuff. Has anyone figured out why, if at all, he would be on the market? Does Boston have that kind of depth at center? I really think trading Savard would mess them up big time.

He sure would be awesome in a Habs uniform! :)

It was last season when then (and still?) "Board member" Harry Sinden let go with his diatribe on how he didn't like Savard, just an assist guy, not a real hockey guy, etc. He had done the same with Thornton, but maybe that one was after the trade with San Jose.

It's possible Savard is intimating, or playing, like he'd rather be somewhere else.

Obviously, a great playmaker, but that's not what the Habs need to top up on some more.
