Marc Savard Wants To Be Maple Leafs' No. 1

John WhiteContributor IIJune 26, 2010 is reporting that Marc Savard has told bruins management he would be willing to waive his no-movement clause should they be able to work out a deal with either the Toronto Maple Leafs or Ottawa Senators

Savard's contract extension kicks in this season, which will see him make $4M a year for the next seven years.

With Boston using the second pick to select Tyler Seguin, they are pretty strong at center and would like to move a center out to make room for defense or wingers. 

Boston would likely like Kaberle coming back for the deal to work out.  Savard was Kessel's center his last season in Boston, assisting on 22 of Kessel's 36 goals. With Ottawa paying $7M for Spezza it is unlikely they try to bring in Savard, especially with Fisher as their No. 2.

The question though is with Savard's recent concussion. Is it really worth the risk of having him locked up for seven years?  Only time will tell.
