If there's any chance to land Savard you can bet your last dollar Burke will be all over it.

In fact, the forward that could make the most difference would be a true #1 centre, and Savard is the only one who looks realistically attainable anytime soon. Probably won't happen for a while though.
ya, it does look that way. But if we get him we have probably 5 top 6 forwards 25 or younger and most of the forward corps should be young in around 2 years time. The defencemen however has to get younger over time.
