Not just free agents, but guys like krejci, rask, seguin in the future. why would they want to re-sign in boston if management is so quick to turn their back on players. Not-a-shot, I also noticed you happen to dislike savard. You say that he is not a #1 center in the nhl, well guess what, neither is bergeron nor krejci.I KNOW savard is a #1 center in the NHL. oh and to bergeron lovers, I dont hate him, hes one of my favorite b's, but people keep saying he had such and "amazing season" since when does putting up 52 points and playing solid defense qualify as an amazing season. He is NOT a #1 center in this league an as of right now, neither is krejci. So why trade savard???

Trading a player is not a team turning it's back on him. It's business. If the B's make the deal and it improves the team, I don't think other players would be hesistant to re-sign. I think they would be more hesitant to re-sign if the team didn't make deals to improve because it was trying to be nice to a player. Chiarelli has handed out very player friendly contracts recently.
PC: Hey David, thanks for coming in.
DK: No problem, Pete.
PC: Listen, you've really progressed as a player and seem to be pretty good in the locker room.
DK: Thanks, Pete. I try, ya know?
PC: Oh, I know. So anyway, we have to get this contract BS out of the way, and you know how much I hate negotiation.
DK: (chuckles) Really?
PC: Yeah, so without seeing what other players of your skill and age are making, we'd like to give you a five year deal worth $29,000,000. It'll be front loaded so you can have the money in your hands a lot faster.
DK: No way, Peter! You asked Savard to waive his no trade clause, he did, and now he's centering Rick Nash, making me the team's #1 center while we have that future Norris candidate you got with the pick in return. I'm outta here.
