savard was never in the running

there is still a perception that he is soft, he is small, he is not good enough defensively to get the job done without the puck against the swedes or russians in a knock-out game, and his skating is suspect. Folks, this is the highest level of hockey played on this particular planet: it will be brutally intense, fast paced, cerebral and canada will be under pressure in every contest. Frankly, for all canada's vaunted depth, they will be shortening the bench to 3.5 lines (and less) and 3 pairs (and maybe 2.5 pairs) of D when it counts.

Marc Savard isn't good enough to play minutes in that situation at that level
