Savard vs. Alfredsson

Both player who are kinda under the radar in the NHL.

Both are small but are huge part of the team success.

Both can put the similar numbers with defensive ability.

Who would you choose first?

for 2 seasons, i'd take Alfie any day of the week, but since he's getting pretty old and not that Marc is really that young, but he's a lot younger, I'd go with Savard long term.

Alfredsson is a much better player and it's not close imo.

Pretty much the exact same answer I was going to type.

It's hard to tell if Alfredsson's declining. The Sens were physically not allowed to play offence under Hartsburg. The season before, Alfredsson was leading the league in points at the All-Star break before getting injured.

Injuries are a concern with Alfredsson, but he seems to be a miraculously fast healer. Or, more accurately, he refuses to let injuries prevent him from helping his team. You'll see him come back after surgeries or broken jaws and only have missed 1 game.

Savard is a great player, and I think he's becoming more well-rounded, but I think he's still far more one-dimensional than Alfredsson. Alfie is still better defensively, brings more of a physical element to the table, and is undeniably the leader of his team (although they weren't half as good as the Bruins were this season).

I think Alfredsson is a superior player today, but I'm going to have to echo the sentiment that if this is for the future, Savard is my pick (although Alfredsson's game is so smart that it shouldn't decline that much over the next few seasons).

Same

Savard is a fine playmaker but Alfredsson is everything else. And he is not "small". 5"11 and 205 lbs is not small. Plus, he's very strong

Savard is finally touted as a "defensive forward" after one season, while Alfie has personified the two-way forward role for years.

I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop with Savard. If he gets tired of playing Julien's system, as what seems to happen to teams with him at the helm...

No slight on Savard whatsoever cause he is a very solid player, but I think Alfredsson is a better overall player that does everything for a team.
