Don’t Move Savard

from Douglas Flynn of the Hockey Journal,

He’s averaged just under 90 points a year over the past four seasons. He’s led the Bruins in scoring in each of his three seasons in Boston and earned All-Star nods in each of the last two years.

Oh, and he owns a no-trade clause as well.

So, why does Marc Savard’s name keep coming up in trade rumors this offseason?

Such is life in the salary cap era.

Carolina Prepared For Game 7

from Chip Alexander of the News & Observer,

What’s left to be said? Not a lot. The Hurricanes either win tonight and keep the Stanley Cup in their sights, or they have a bittersweet ending to their season and start facing the speculation about who returns and who won’t for next season.

“It’s Game 7. You want to play in those games,” Staal said. “Obviously, we wanted to finish it off when we could, but it didn’t happen. We look forward to Game 7, look forward to the challenge. You dream of playing in those games growing up as a kid, and it’s going to be fun.”

When they led 3-1 in the series, the Canes talked about theurgency of winning Game 5 andand finishing off the Bruins in Boston.

Now, the common refrain—as if the Canes were trying to convince themselves of it—is that that they gladly would have accepted and embraced a one-game, winner-take-all scenario before the series began against the Eastern Conference’s top seed.
