Acquiring Savard would have been good until it came extension time. There is no way we could afford two seasons at $7mil and one at $6.5mil. We wouldn't be able to extend Weber. Couldn't sign Suter. Wouldn't be able to give a proper raise to Hornqvist (before this is refuted with "he hasn't proven himself" there are teams who would most likely be willing to pay to find out). I would like to have Savard or Heatley or Kessel or Malkin et al, but the reality is we can't afford them while continuing to maintain a competitive team. The ticket sales just aren't there yet.
