I don't know if Savard ever becomes the player he became if he stayed with this team. Remember that it wasn't really until his last season in Atlanta that he developed into the top-line player he is.
I don't agree with that argument at all. I'm not saying he would be the player he is today any quicker if he stayed on the Rangers. Just that he would be the player he is today on any team. The only valid argument which I also disagree with is that he doesn't become the player he is today without Kovalchuk and Heatly. I mean, he was playing on a crappy Thrashers team. He's not any worse off on a crappy Rangers team.
I don't know how the versus feed is...as I'm not interested in listening to how awesome Zach Parise is..but I'm getting sic of the during play interviews with people on CBC.
it's not that far off. Doc and Engblom spend a lot of time with mindless banter and talking about Canadians hockey history. you get a mention of the players once in a while. I really thought they would promote the players more.
