it's not just salary... we'd have to replace goaltending, and that adds up... and there's no way the team adds that kind of contract on defense, while already having Jovo and Ohlund in the fold.

Besides, Savard isn't exactly a good defensive center... that's what the canucks need to play with the top line. Mo is easily and above average defensive player - the canucks best 2-way center, and one of the better PKers... Savard does nothing to replace that, and that's what this team needs more than any offense Savard brings over Mo.
