In Response to Re: Sayanora "Savvy" : Krejci is better defensively, better on the transition & can create offence on his own & is much better in traffic. He doesn't make low % passes like Savard & he certainly doesn't whine, dive & take ridiculous, selfish penalties like Savard. If the Bs move a center it should be Savard. He is quickly becoming a PP specialist & that is pretty well it. There is much more to hockey then stats. How was Marc Savard playing when he was 23 yrs old? Savard is easily one of the most overated players in the league. Great passer but plays a selfish game & is to reliant on his wingers.

Almost everything here is false, except that Krejci is better in the d-zone (Krejci is still a mediocre defender, lets not brag about his defense like he's Patrice Bergeron).
You're also acting like Savard is Rasheed Wallace, you're exaggerating, generalizing him from taking a bad penalty, It happens, get over it. Savard doesn't make a habit of it.
He isn't becoming a PP specialist.
Krejci makes mistakes passing too, hockey is a game of mistakes.
Savard is a better passer than Krejci
Savard is a better shooter than Krejci
Savard is better on the PP than Krejci
You say, krejci, "creates offense" yet Savard has more assists and more goals each season... hmmm.... the only offense that matters is offense that results in goals.
To summarize: your argument is that Krejci is the lesser of two evils on defense, quieter to the refs, and that "stats" like goals and assists don't matter as much as we think they do.
