Was over on hockeysfuture and read that Savard has said he is willing to waive his no trade clause to three teams, Detroit, Toronto and Ottawa.

Hudler+1st round pick for Savard?

Filpulla+? for Savard.

I would try to pull the trigger on this.

If this is true and he wants a Cup, only one of those options really qualifies doesn't it.

I can't guarantee this, but I think that someone posted recently that the arbitration results with Hudler prevent a trade after he signs. Regarding Filppula, I really don't want to see him traded. I think he just gets a bad rap on here, as with some other players. Regarding Savard what is his cap hit and for how many years?

Edit: Looks like his cap hit is 4.007 million, and he becomes an UFA in 2017/18.

Goodness... yes. Just all I can say. Always been one of my favorite players. If we can do that, sorry Val but I am all about it.

Savard at 4 a year would be a really good pick up, however it would be center overload again. I guess though you could then reunite Hank and Pav.

It would require Flip and a prospect I think, I don't see them wanting 2 roster players as they are sort of against the cap and need to sign Wheeler and Boychuk.

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.

Geez....the last thing the Leafs need is to get ripped off by Boston again.

But Savard & Kessel sounds good. Hate that big, long contract though.

Cleary would have to waive his No Trade Clause.

Gotta factor in age, he's 33 and had a major concussion just months ago.... it's too much to throw away a 50pts+ player and a 1st rounder

Usually I don't agree with a damn thing you say - but you're dead on, on this one.

He would be an instant fan favorite here... I would give up any number of prospects and picks to get Lucic...

I don't get the Clears hate yet again. Savard as it has been said is 33, and will not bring the exact same things to the ice that a player such as Danny does. I don't know man, the trade Cleary thing is just at a pinnacle and this is the year I feel we need to see what he can do. So nah on that.

Not necessarily a first but maybe a half decent prospect or a pick of some kind.


This is a guy one season removed from 88 points and a few off of 97. Definitely worth Hudler + something.

Pass. His injury history and age at this point is not worth losing a Flip or Hudler and a prospect.

EDIT: Also I would expect this to effect our RFA signings and depth since we would have to pay more money into one player.

EDIT 2: I need mas facts

Savard is signed through 2016/17.

Well, he's locked in until 2017, so he wouldn't be going anywhere... but I don't want him for what it would cost us...

Hudler hasn't peaked, Savard has and one could argue is on the downswing with the recent injuries, plus Hudler costs more than a million less...

no thanks.

Yep, fits absolutely, positively everything we need. That said, fantasies only last for so long and Boston has just as much love for him as anyone else would have. We would need to really get rid of years of prospects I believe.
