What about Savard's game has soured the Columbus fanbase about his future, some even having him out of their personal top 7-10 prospects for the Jackets?
First, I don't think anyone has him out of the top 5. He's still pretty highly regarded, but his skating is what brings him down. He also didn''t play the best in his own zone during his stint in Columbus. Not bad, but not what he should be at. I think the general feeling with Savard is he has 2nd pairing potential, top PP potential. Thanks for stopping by
