I would agree. I think they knew that Tim and David would be the extra guys, and that they'd rather have Tim getting minutes. I also heard a while ago that Savard is unhappy in the AHL, I couldn't link it but it was last season. Keeping him here may improve his own morale while allowing Erixon to play.
