Marc Savard Trade Rumours Just Won’t Go Away.

With less than a month remaining until Bruins training camp those lingering Marc Savard trade rumours just won’t go away. This 33 year-old, who scored only 10 goals and 33 points in 41 games, due to a major concussion last year, has been rumoured to be on the move for the entire summer. Sources close to the Bruins have reported that the 12 year veteran, who has spent the past four seasons in Beantown, is attracting interest from teams who can’t deal for him at this time, due to certain cap issues. Also causing problems is Savard’s current contract, which is currently being investigated by the NHL. Savard, who has scored 205 goals and 696 points in his career, has seven years to go on his contract, with an annual cap hit of four million. Ever since the NHL turned down the 17 year — 102 million dollar contract that the New Jersey Devils offered forward, Ilya Kovalchuk, various long term deals to such players as Chicago Blackhawks’ forward Marian Hossa, Vancouver Canucks’ goalie, Roberto Luongo, and of course Savard have been re-examined by the league. Currently there are a lot of bidders for Savard, but they are just waiting to see what happens after the contract investigation. More than likely, when Bruins camp opens on September 17th, that those rumours will still be dogging him until a resolution is made. Earlier this summer Savard, who has also played for the New York Rangers, Calgary Flames, Atlanta Thrashers and Boston Bruins, admitted to an Ottawa newspaper that he has been “hurt” by all the trade speculation around his name.
