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?
There may be some investment in "winning" the trade with the NYR that brought Erixon here (esp. in relation to the other trade with the NYR, that sent John Moore there). A significant piece in a blockbuster trade has more, how you say?, cachet, than a homegrown guy?
