OT: Marc Savard agrees to 7 year contract extension

http://sports.espn.go.com/boston/nhl...ory?id=4703503

Since this is a guy we've all discussed and probably desired, I figured it deserved its own thread.

Just $4.2 million per year. Less than Drury. That is sickening to know that.

From Sportsnet
The 32-year-old centre will earn an average of between $4.5 million and $4.8 million, with most of the money paid in the first five years.

Front loaded contract since he will be 39 when his contract is up.

Good deal for Boston

I think, while no longer here, the better comparison is Gomez. Gomez could only hope he plays at Savard's level.

While spewing my anti-gomez sentiments around here, Savard was the one I always compared to.

Yeah, but it's for 7 years, and he's only a year younger than Drury is.

I'd say contract and play included, Savard is exactly 400% the value of Drury.

Wow.

Exactly why people shouldn't go writing in pending UFAs into next year's lineup. God help us if Ilya signs an extension next. lol

Not necessarily. At least not for me. Just showing another example of how poor drury's contract is. Savard has put up the numbers the past 4 seasons that drury never put up. So if someone wants to say well he's a year younger than drury and when this contract is up he'll be 39, then i'll just say well the guy damn well deserves it and im sure boston can live with that considering he is a star center in this league who produces.

i think this deserves its own thread...savard has been discussed time and time again considering he was due to be a free agent at the end of the season and we are missing that true number one center.

You need more proof? Does anyone?

Is there a way to find those Drury threads from the spring-summer 2007? So many people wanted this player and now they are all running away from him.

You needed to see Savy's contract to know Drury's is bad? Really!?

I'm not a fan of any sort of 7 year guaranteed deal. The only ways I see it as being worth the risk is if you've got a player that's not only a star, but is one of the most marketable players in the league (Ovechkin, Crosby, Malkin)...and that's more or less just a managerial perspective and has little to do with actual on ice performance.

Savard's career could end tomorrow and Boston would best case scenario come to some sort of injury settlement where they're still giving him a % of that money.


And I think it's important to realize, if you're gonna start comparing Drury's contract to contracts being signed now, which is pretty annoying, that we weren't really in much of a recession at all, and IMO that sort of thing plays into a player's free agent market value.

Why? Savard never hit the open market, and Drury was signed before these long-term, front loaded contracts started becoming the norm. Other than the fact that they're over 30 and play center, I don't see much of a comparison.

Does Savard have any intangibles? You get big payouts for those you know. Seeing this extension is pure hindsight of course, doesn't everyone wish they could predict the future? I sure as hell didn't want him when he was here, looked and played too small but, he was also very very young.

Actually, Savard did hit the open market after a 97 point season with atlanta and signed with Boston for 4mil/per.

If his career ended tomorrow Boston would get all the cap space back, no?

In addition, there's no way the Savard would have signed in New York for a $4.5m/year deal. And I'm not talking about cap space, I'm talking about the fact that players won't come to New York without commanding a huge premium.

$4M in Boston = $7M in New York.

Im a bit shocked that Savard agreed to that, especially considering the fact that an RFA Lucic with no 20 goal seasons under his belt is being paid practically the same amount.

Which isn't the contract that the poster was referring to. Do you think that if Savard hit the market this summer, he would have gotten the same deal he took from Boston?

Savard got about 5 million on the open market from Boston...

Maybe Drurys contract isnt so bad. I mean, just his extra intangibkes are probably worth 4-5 million dollars per year
