Tough to say given Thornton has experianced so many more games and gone deeper and all Savard has played are soft Montreal teams.

I'd wait until Savard has seen more playoff experiance before making any judgement.

I think we both know exactly what the results were going to be before you posted this poll.

Therefore, what was the point of this?

Although, I do have to admit that some people have been really bringing their 'A' game of stupidity in their replies.

+/- is meaningless. Thornton is playing on a team with all of their stars ice cold and up against a hot goalie and two superstud d-men. Savard played against a brutal, broken team missing lots of key players, including one of the best d-men in the league. Also a psychologically messed up young goalie.

I think Savard is better, but the stats have to taken with a huge block of salt, and certainly +/- is the least significant of them all.

I'm not, based on the timing of this poll: Thornton tanking badly in the playoffs and Savard turning it up big time

Savard and it's not close

Watched both and Big Joe usually disappears at this time of the year and on the other hand in 2 playoff series that Savard played he was great and a pretty big factor,something Thornton wasn't able to do and got outplayed everytime by Koivu of the Habs

He didn't play his first playoff game until last year ... when he was 30.

Thornton has disappointed, but Savard's playoff reputation can't be fairly judged based on 11 games against the same team.
Really .what the hell did Thornton do against the Habs in all the games he played against them.You got it Not a thing, except Choke.

Both have been seriously injured just before a playoff series (Thornton had a cracked rib in 2004 & Savard had a cracked back in 2008) and both have been First Line Centers in Boston

Now I know that Joe Thornton has played a Lot more playoff games than Marc Savard but I thought it would be interesting to see what people's impressions are of 2 players who have similar skills & numbers but play the game in very different ways.

Here are their numbers:

Joe Thornton

74 NHL Playoff Games
11 Goals
39 Assists
50 Points
- 13

http://www.nhl.com/ice/player.htm?id=8466138

Marc Savard

11 NHL Playoff Games
3 Goals
8 Assists
11 Points
- 1

http://www.nhl.com/ice/player.htm?id=8462118

Cheers
Just wanted to update the numbers since both player have now been eliminated from the playoffs.

Joe Thornton

76 NHL Playoff Games
12 Goals
41 Assists
53 Points
-12

Marc Savard

18 NHL Playoff Games
7 Goals
12 Assists
19 Points
+1

Maybe 1 day they'll actually play each other in the playoffs...
