I was thinking that Savard might have more value now than Kaberle because of Kaberle's health situation but I didn't want to offend Leaf fans. Just a few weeks ago I was thinking it would be crazy to trade Savard when I saw someone mention it but now I'm not so sure.

If Savard does have more value than Kaberle there could be additional pieces thrown in by both sides I guess.

Say for instance the Bruins want to trade Ward or Ference. I know Burke was quoted as saying that the Leafs could afford to take on salary in trades.

So maybe it goes something like this (if Savard has more value?)

Bruins get

Kaberle 2 years at 4.25 cap number
Ponikarovsky 1 year at 2.105 cap number

Leafs get

Savard -- 1 year at 5 million
Sturm or Ward -- 2 years at 3.5 million or 1 year at 2.5 million
Bruins 1st 09' #28 or 29

*Sturm has a limited no trade clause I think (not sure if he would want or could be forced to go to Toronto)

Please be kind...I'm new at this sort of thing
