Marc Savard: Trade candidate?
Eklund came out with his top 25 to be traded post. Marc Savard made the list at number 9.
Is Savard a legit trade candidate? No.
He has a NTC and is the Bruins best offensive player aside from possibly Kessel. How would this PP do without him? How would the teams offense play without him? He factors in to a good amount of the Bruins goals. I don't understand how there is any chance Savard is traded. I'm telling you the Bruins trade Krejci before him. Savard is a top 3 playmaker in this league with Thornton and Crosby. Not to mention, he makes 5 million next year as well, well under market value for a 90 point guy.
Unless you are getting a 50 goal scorer or a Lidstromesque defender, why would you trade him? Again, this is more of Eklund being Eklund than anything, but his name has been thrown around by people before. There is no way Savard is dealt unless the package in return is insane.
