Since the start of the free agent period, Marc Savard has been stuck at the center of the rumor mill. He has been linked to teams such as Toronto, Columbus, and Calgary; all of them are rumored to be interested in his services.
However, his current team—the Boston Bruins—who just signed him this past season to a seven-year deal, including a no-trade clause, may be in need of his services more than anyone in the NHL.
So how come they don’t realize it?
Despite signing a new contract just last season, Marc Savard remains trade bait. But much to the delight of B’s fans, the market for Savvy has dried up as of late, which means he’ll most likely be wearing the Black and Gold come opening night in Prague.
