    Why pay for past performance lots of wear and tear way he plays I doubt Florida ends up liking the Acciari deal.

    Get 2 more good years and let him go captain Columbus.

    I think like Paille we will refuse to give our stud 4th liner and real shot on a higher line.

    Wrong guy to pay though chances that he’s hurt in July are too high. All 3 of him Wags and Acciari missed playoff games due to injury.

    Man....

    Good for Savvy. Happy for him.

    But from drooling over the laffs to joining the St louis coaching staff.. He's moved down a few notches in my mind :sarcasm: :laugh::skeptic:

    I mean, good for him personally and I'm glad he's back in hockey, but... The Blues? Now? Barf.

    Good for him. I know when he first started to be back in the public eye on twitter he posted alot about looking to get into coaching (specifically OHL). I don't think anything came of it and he started doing some media stuff.

    Odd that Savard is now helping coach the headshot champions last season. Love what he did in Boston and happy he has made it back to the NHL in terms of his struggle to get his life back to normal. With that being said, **** him. He is now part of the enemy.

    Surprisingly, I don't have any lingering animosity toward the Blues. The Bruins earned a Game 7 at home to win the Cup and laid an egg, which is especially hard to accept since it was some of their best players who were most guilty. That's not on the Blues.

    So good for Marc Savard. I would've thought the Blues' best chance would be this upcoming season even before their Cup, so Savard could be in a very good position.

    With the site down last night, I haven't yet been able to get caught up on the reasoning for the Leafs acquiring Clarkson. But from what I've read, they can use LTIR to increase their cap by $10 million?

    If that's the case it's clearly an attempt to circumvent the cap, and I'm surprised with all the talk of cap recaptures, the league is OK with it.

    Loved Savard but the guy's only coaching experience is a AAA-bantam team. I imagine they're bringing him in to run the powerplay, which isn't exactly an area of concern for the Bruins.

    I have lost all respect for him. Coaching in the type of system that ended his career. His message about cleaning up the game is now hollow.

    EXACTLY and from what I remember about him and the Sobotka fiasco that cut down on my respect level for him too. So, in the end **** him!

    Savard a coach for the head hunters.

    I guess irony can be kind of ironic sometimes.

    Team that won the cup on the back of headshots that caused concussions as part of their game plan is hiring Marc Savard? What?

    I am surprised Savvy would want to coach with those scum. The Bruin really couldn't make that same offer? Too busy hiring defense only coaches?

    Good for him. If for no other reason it means he's finally well enough for a travel.

    Good for Savvy. Glad to see he's recovered enough to be working and travelling, like Wally said. Would love for the Bruins to find him a job somewhere down the line.

    Craig Berube hired him to get expert advice on how to get the biggest concussions out of opposing players

    Can't blame Savard, he wanted to coach in the NHL and maybe nobody was making an offer. How many guys has Marchand concussed?

    Yeah that's the way I'm seeing it. He has zero coaching experience and someone offered him a job as an NHL assistant. He's been hanging around golfing for 4-5 years now and is probably bored out of his mind.

    Would you turn down the job if the Habs offered to let you be an NHL assistant? I'm sure 99% of this board would take it even if they were only paying $60K a year.
