The Flames really lack a playmaking center, Savard is just what they need.

The whole premise of Savard being carried by Kovalchuk is a joke.

Is Savard helped out by playing with Kovalchuk ? Certainly.
Is Kovalchuk helped out by playing with Savard ? Absolutely.

Savard is one of the leagues better playmakers.
Playing nearly 23 minutes a night.
27 points in just 20 games
Winning 53% of his face-offs
3 game winning goals
Missed just 3 weeks after breaking his ankle
Kind of hard to go against him with those numbers...but I will. I don't like the guy and I think he is a punk, even when he was a Ranger. I guess my last impression of him squeezing next to Gretzky after TGO's last game still ticks me off. But on the ice, the guy has talent. But then again who would you take in years gone by in baseball, Albert Belle or Joe Carter. Me personally, I would take Carter. And if we compare Savard to York, it's not even close who I would take.
