I don't think there's as much wrong with his skating as people knock him for. He gets where he needs to be, most of the time. I think the main issue is that he's just a young defenseman, and tends to get lost in the fold from time to time with John Moore, Tim Erixon, and Ryan Murray all slotting ahead of him on the potential depth chart. There's a very good chance that Savard winds up better than any or all of those guys, but time will tell.

I think he does have the potential to be a very good defenseman in the NHL; a powerplay quarterback that can maybe play on the second pair. The upside is there, but we need to temper our expectations. He won't be the next Kris Letang, so I think we'd be selling him up the river if we talked about him in that context.
