TSN has revealed it’s first NHL trade bait board and sitting in the #2 spot is Columbus Blue Jackets defenceman David Savard.
Savard, 30, is a pending unrestricted free agent and the big question is, will Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen trade Savard at the 2021 NHL Trade Deadline? Kekalainen has a history of playing out contracts to their completion – will he pull the trigger at this years deadline?
Savard is an excellent stay-at-home defenceman, great at shot-blocking and he is very physical which makes Savard extremely hard to play against.
NHL Trade Rumors have the Boston Bruins, Philadelphia Flyers and the LA Kings all seeking some defensive help. Savard would definitely help any team that is looking to make a playoff run this year.
