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.

Savard has evolved into a great player - assists, scoring, hitting, PK and PP. Not to mention sticks up for cheap hitting hsi teammates. He is evolving into a Bruin moreso than when Chia signed him to replace the Joe role. The only reason why it would make sense is that the B's can save $5MM on the cap to be sued elsewhere - but where? With Muzz coming off and Manny on his way out - plus a new CBA means rookies go back to their bonuses not counting, Chia has a tough but do-able job. Look down the list of the 25 - all players that are in losing teams, over paid or getting old. Savard is in none of those, why would he waive his NTC? I hope they sign Thomas to an extension (I think it's his last) in case Rask does not turn out to be ready next year so he can ride shotgun to the youngster.

Eklund is the biggest fool, and wastes my time with his BS, trying to get his site attention with outrageous claims, that NEVER come true.
