Savard & TOR 1st for Bouwmeester & CGY 2nd,
Savard is high risk/high reward for Calgary, if he's healthy then they have a top line center that has chemistry with their top line winger. They also get out from under JayBo's contract. Boston gets a solid top 2 defender to skate big minutes and provide much needed puck moving skills, and they get a high end 2nd rounder to balance the loss of a potential top 5 pick.
The Toronto pick is a gamble in every sense of the word. It's currently top 5, but I see more likelihood that it slips lower rather than higher as we go forward. If it's 5th or outside of that, there is no guarantee it does anything to help Boston in the near (or even distant) future.
All that said, I'd be happy with a final return of Seguin, Bouwmeester, Jared Knight, and a 2nd rounder for Savard & Kessel.
Calgary doesn't have a 2nd
Take one of
Glencross / Hagman / Negrin / Pelech / Morrison / Stajan / Tanguay
to go back instead.
