Everyone Wins With The Savard Deal

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,

Marc Savard did something very rarely seen in this day and age of big money professional sports.

He put his money where his mouth was.

The Bruins’ crafty center and leading scorer has been the model of consistency over the last two years whenever he’s been approached about impending free agency and his related desire to remain with Boston.

Savard told me as much last season during a one-on-one conversation. The line of questioning veered off toward his future hockey address – and where he saw himself playing once the four-year, $20 million deal with the Bruins was over and done.

“Once I signed here, I had all the intentions of wanting to retire here and play for one team for a long time,” Savard said. “I don’t want to move around anymore. I love the fans here and I love the city, so I don’t have any intentions of going anywhere.
