What would it take to get Marc Savard?

I really dont know where to begin on a proposal for Savard. very solid down the middle, and a good contract at 5 mil a season. But he is 31. What would it take to get Savard in a Blue Jackets uniform?

Savard won't be dealt at this time, Boston would be foolish to do so. That said, if Krejci continues to improve and Bergeron has a solid season, I could see Savard possibly being moved in the off-season. My guess is that Boston would want a solid top 3/4 d-man in return as a centerpiece.

Yes, Boston would want a puck moving defenseman in return for Savard. Another piece, depending on the defenseman, would also likely be needed. However, Savard has a NTC, so that makes things a bit more difficult.

Savard + Axe for Bowemester and Weiss, gives us a #1a d-man who together with chara will make us a cup contender, and gives us a 3rd line center to play behind Krejci and Bergeron

If JBo wasn't a UFA, this would be a good deal. Savard and Horton on the first line gives Florida the firepower to contend, and the Bruins would have a scary top 4 on defense.

Because he is a UFA, and because it's known that he grew up a Boston fan, I would hold out until the off season. Manny and Axe's contracts are up, which clears enough space to sign him. Krejci and Kessel are also RFA's though, and they would be taken care of first IMO. With a little salary shuffling, this may be our best bet.

Short Answer: A lot.

Teams that are rebuilding but making the playoffs and improving (like Boston) don't trade their best forward for picks or prospects. That just continues the rebuilding process.

The last time Boston traded their best offensive player, and best forward, That GM was run out of town by the fans and management. Trading Savard is way too risky, and if the team loses ground in the standings, that GM will be run out of town too.

If the Bruins were planning on trading Savard - Columbus seems like a bad partner for the Bruins to trade with. Right now the Bruins need a top 4 puck moving defenseman.

Unless Columbus wants to do a Voracek, Russell for Savard swap I don't see them as a partner for the B's to trade with.

What is being implied here?

Age 31 is typically a player's prime years.

at this point in his contract and the season, way more than you would want to give up i think.

Bruins get a Hab killer and a solid D prospect.

The guy is like, 50% of their offensive production. He may not be the highest impact offensive player in the league, but I can't think of many guys more crucial to a team's offensive makeup. Unless you gave the B's apples for apples, I can't see how moving Savard helps them in any way, even if they did get a top-notch defender.

I wouldn't be opposed to something like Filatov, Russell +....I'd do it at the deadline if Bergeron proves he is back to his normal self.

That's simple - hire Greg Gilbert as your coach, and he and Savard will be fueding in no time. As long as you have Ruslan Zainullen as trade bait, you can land Savvy straight for Ruslan.

That's about right...or somewhere along the lines of Voracek (instead of Filatov) along with Russell +...

It would take Bergeron playing better than Savard for him to be on the market. Until that happens, keep trying to trade for him in EA NHL 2009.

Bieksa, Pyatt, 1st

Not saying I'd make that deal, but thats what it would take.

He's put up 90 plus points in three straight seasons.

Pyatt's value isn't much, i think guys like Raymond, Hansen, Burrows and even Ryan Johnson are more valuable in a trade than that guy is at the moment or ever was in his entire over hyped high pick career. Aside from his "pretty eyes" that makes the women swoon, he's not really physical for his size nor is he polished around the net. I had hopes for him but oh well i gave up after he couldn't get anything going in Buffalo.

If I'm Boston and that deal is offered, I'd rather ask for Hansen instead of Pyatt. Either case, Bergeron would have to be playing at the same level in terms of production as Savard and until that happens, Savard isn't going to be traded.

Horcoff, Denis Grebeshkov 2nd Round Pick

Leaves B's with some cap room so they can get a decent rental player at deadline (Gionta?)

I think Boston would have more interest in Gilbert than Grebs.

Savard has a history of injuries and has never really finished a season up until a couple years ago. He also plays in the East. While he has some goals, he is primarily an assist player so the team he goes too has to have a shooter for Savard to work with.
