A trade with boston is very unlikely but i think this could work.

To Van: Marc Savard
To Bos: 5th round pick

Im not sure about this move because of savards concussion problems but i say we take a chance, i dont know if he will ever return and i dont know if he is trying to return or where he is in his recovery. But if there is a chance i say we gamble and go for it. He would be a great playmaker for the second line and bring a veteran presence, not that we need one but you can never have too much leadership. And we only have to give up a second round pick. I think boston would go for it because they get rid of his contract and free up cap space to resign lucic/horton/seguin and get something in return instead of just buying him out. Low risk high reward because if he retires i believe his contract come off the books? Correct me if im wrong.

The value might be off, a lower pick might be able to get him.

A 2nd round pick in a very deep draft for a player that is retired/is going to retire. No thanks.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Way too much to give up for a player that most likely won't ever play again.

Throwing away a 2nd rounder

Savard is like Pronger.. they both have a hard time functioning in every day life due to their injuries..

Unfortunately, their careers are over.. I feel worse for Savard, because at least Pronger got to play for close to 20 years and won a Cup and some other hardware...

Savard is basically retired. The only reason he hasn't officially is so he can still get medical pay.
What is the deal with Mike Gillis, it always seems like he's sweating...

we could send, litterally, a used puck bag to boston and thats still an overpayment for a guy who, odds are, wont ever play again.

Imagine if this trade went through then Savard fully recovered and became his old self.

I would be laughing for months :lol:

Worth the risk IF Savard is fully healthy. Huge IF though.
