Savard To Test Free Agency Market

from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,
Marc Savard will explore the unrestricted free agent market according to his agent, meaning the Thrashers could lose their top center without compensation. Savard's agent, Larry Kelly, and Thrashers general manager Don Waddell agreed the team would not take advantage of its exclusive negotiating rights, which expire at midnight July 1. Nonetheless, Kelly emphasized Savard's affinity for the team. "It doesn't mean Marc will not sign in Atlanta, it's just to get an indication of value," Kelly said. "As to whether he will stay in Atlanta or whether another opportunity will carry the day, he loves it there, he loves the coach [Bob Hartley]. There's a good possibility he'll sign in Atlanta. But we will have a look at what's out there on July 1."
