    Marc Savard

    Is he the power play genius of all time?

    He after all did make this power play unit look average for the last few years, its obvious without him they are not even close to that and infact might be the worst power play of all time in the history of the NHL.

    When was the last time your team got a power play in the playoffs and you knew you had time for a pi$$ break, because nothing was going to happen for 2 minutes? Well nothing short of tennis anyhow.

    You know what the really sad thing is?  There were 10 teams with worse power plays this season than Boston.  Okay, so I think it was worse down the stretch and now than it was the first half of the season, but how painful must it be to watch a Florida powerplay (13.4%)?

    Really amazing how much of a difference Savard was able to make.

    Re: Marc Savard

    Savard did have a unique talent, but Kreji should be just as good. What is truly wrong is that the PP players do not seem to know where their on-ice guys are or should be or will be. The Marchand goal , last night, was a perfect example of Bergeron passing to where he believed Marshy would be. Right on= goal. The PP should be no different. Even eliminate slap shots for directed wrist shots. Noone wants to stand in front of a Chara or Boychuck blast, but constant movement can move the goalie, and the defenders, so tips are more probable. Watch the effective PP teams; big blasts are minimized and replaced by directed wristers or passes that are deflected up, over, or behind the goalie.

    The issue still remains the initial rush and establishing possession in the offensive zone. Not something Savard would be able to help.

    I'd rather see Bergeron, Krejci, Kelly or Peverly (the guys with strong vision and awareness) rush the puck and let the bangers (Lucic, Horton, Chara, Marchand, Recchi) crash the boards and establish possession.

    That, and they miss Savard big time.

    Re: Marc Savard

    I saw the main difference between Savard and Krejci on the 4 on 3 last night one of them is what BB pointed out Marc would draw PK players in then make them look dump as he would put a perfect backhand pass right on his defenseman's stick and Krejci panics with the puck which is confusing because David is so confident 5 on 5.

    Re: Marc Savard

    I will not repeat all of my thoughts on this, but I think that right now, Tyler Seguin is the best Active Bruin coming off the Half wall, I think he could someday be as good as Savvy from that position.  I think Krejci should be used on the PP but definitely not from that position.  Even if you only play Seguin in limited minutes as it was last night, I think he should be used as a PP specialist much in the same way as Kaberle.  They seem to work very well together IMO.
