    Sayanora "Savvy"


    I realize it's a pipedream, but I'm holding out hope that Chiarelli can somehow find a way to unload "Savvy." I won't be able to take seven more years of this clown's act.

    Think Ray Shero would entertain a straight-up deal for Matt Cooke?

    Yeah, you guys are right. Savvy's the best. What a year he had - had he been healthy all year, he would have racked up 66 points [otherwise known as Tim Connolly country].

    Add in all the stupid penalties, the chirping at the refs, the dogging it back to the bench on line changes, and fitting the Bruins' "tough to play against" credo to a T, and you've got yourselves a franchise center.

    Best of all - @ 33 he's young and has his best years ahead of him. Good thing he's locked up long-term.

    Someone had too much time on their hands this morning.  Maybe the Flyers board doesn't have enough to talk about, because issues like "We would have probably won the Cup if we had a coherent goalie" obviously aren't on the hot stove right now...

    I am a Bruins fan & as much as I disagree with getting Matt Cooke on this team I totally agree with your premise regarding Savard. Dumb move by Chia to give this guy a 7 yr deal. This will certainly hurt the Bruins down the road in a couple of years.

    Savard's continual whining, diving & senseless penalties are not what a team leader is about. What has Marc Savard ever won? The Bs should of let this guy go at the end of his previous contract & saved the longterm capspace. He is a selfish (Stats wise & penalties) player who can't create his own offence. He disappears when the games get physical. This is not a guy to build a team around. David Krejci & Patrice Bergeron are two better allround centers & 10 yrs younger.

    To those posters who say "well Savard gave a hometown discount" it is simply not true. Sure a 4 million caphit looks nice but it is over 7 yrs. There was no way any other team were going to give him a 7 yr contract IMO. He may have been able to get a 4 yr/6.5 per deal from a desperate team like Toronto which would give him a 26 million dollar contract. The caphit looks good now but the Bs will regret this signing at some point. Plus the guy is 33 yrs old.

    And just wait til he starts complaining when David Krejci takes over as the # 1 PP center which is inevitable IMO. Bad, bad move by Chia who panicked in a time when the Bs were struggling for offence. Lets not even get into his lack of accountability on the too many men call in game 7 & the fact he does not make the Bs harder to play against which is what Chia preaches.

    ......Savard is one of the Best PP QB's in the entire NHL. Krejci is a 2nd line center MAX. Waiting for Krejci to take over Savard's spot is like waiting for Jesus to come back to earth; it ain't happening, and to think so is foolish.

    To compare a guy who has averaged more than a point per game in every season he's been with the Bruins (except last season due to injury), to David Krejci is pitiful.

    Newfiebullet,
    I have a quick question for you, are you mentally ill, do you have some condition that stems from lack of oxygen to your brain??
    Savvy's game has improved more so under CJ teaching and he is only going to be better. He get the majority of his $$$ up front in the contract of which will be his most productive years.
    You maybe need to go to visit the Habs site and give them advice.

    I think the rat is just scared of facing a healthy savy next year.  If you knew anything about hockey you would know it takes time to get in the groove after missing time from an injury.

    1st of all you are correct that Savard is a good PP quarterback. Not much physical play on the QB.

    If you think Krejci is a 2nd line center max then you clearly haven't watch him play. He is a more complete player then Savard right now. Have you ever heard of 33 yr old players declining & 23 yr old players improving? 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.

    ddd112273, I have a quick question for you? Since when do 33 yr old centers only get better? The caphit right now is good. I agree & that is why the Bs maybe able to move him to a desperate team. However, a 7 yr deal for a 33 yr old player like Savard is too long. To many holes in his game that may only get worse as he ages. You don't win with players like Marc Savard. Much to selfish. He has a history of it.

    I am no Savard fan.  I don't think he could lead an Irishman to a bar, let alone a team to victory.  Ok, maybe leadership isn't his thing.  Fine, but his crybaby reactions all-the-time might have a negative effect.

    He's not a powerplay quarterback, that term is used for the defenseman.  Savard sets up on the half boards and looks around, then makes a pass.  Great.

    He has his share of bad passes also, and tends to attempt the exciting passes from the bottom of the circle to the red line...which get turned over and end up with a red light flashing.

    Yes, the guy can pass, and he's servicable in the faceoff circle.  He certainly doesn't make those around him better.  Put any winger with a true dishing #1 center and that winger will check in with some serious goal totals...no matter who he is.  Not the case with Savard.  We're always blaming the wingers.

    Just thought of this one:  Kessel scored 36 goals with the Bruins superstar center, but then checked in with 30 in Toronto with Matt Stajan ($1.75M) and company. 

    Savard is a fraud.

    Since I'm gainfully employed and don't spend every waking minute on Internet message boards, I'm not sure what a troll is.

    But I do know this: a hapless jocksniffer such as yourself would be lucky to become the assistant GM of his local Dairy Queen franchise.

    As for the rest of you fanboys, if I were a Flyers fan, don't you think I'd have chosen "TheRat14" as a screen name to reflect the number he wore there? Duh.

    Ken Linseman is everything Marc Savard will never be.

    Thanks to Newfie for seeing No. 91 for what he is - a soft, overrated whiner with a hollow hockey resume.

    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.

    Top forward on the strong side half-boards on the PP is the most important position on the power-play; player here often referred to as the quarterback (the most important player on the football field)

    We will see who is right. I bet Krejci is our # 1 center by the 2011 playoffs.

    Def. trade Savard... it would send such a good message to every player in the league that Boston is the place for you!!
    People kill me... Savard doesn't know the "tough to play against" team? Wasn't he the first to jump in when Lucic was hit by Avery in the Dallas game? He's always had his teammates back.. and he's a little guy. FYI - tough to play teams need high skilled players too! Bashing Savvy is moronic.. what has he won? Well before Boston he spent years in Atlanta.. nobody wins there, and he was in Calgary before that. Savvy is a #1 center, one of the most offensively gifted forwards in the league and at 33... it is possible to improve.. look at his overall game before his injuries this season.. he has improved as a complete player while still putting up big numbers. Find something else to cry about.. Cry about the Ference or Thomas contract if you want to complain about a signing... his buyout number towards the end of the contract is nothing, if he doesn't retire first.

    Searching in Google, it seems the term is used for both forwards and defensemen.

    It likely depends on the specific kind of power-play the team is running. I'm most comfortable calling the strong side forward on the half- boards the "QB" because i'm the most comfortable with the overload power-play, where this is the case.

    When a team has a really gifted passer, they often put him on the half-boards are run an overload PP, which I believe the B's run with Savard out there. If a team has great shooting, puck moving defensemen, they could have a greater role and demand the puck more. i guess it all depends

    I don't know who who be called the QB on the umbrella or a man in front varieties, but its likely a defender would be.
