Stay updated on NHL trade rumors as the Tampa Bay Lightning show interest in David Savard from the Montreal Canadiens.

The NHL trade landscape is buzzing with speculation as the Tampa Bay Lightning have emerged as contenders for Montreal Canadiens defenseman David Savard.

Tampa Bay Lightning Interested in Acquiring Montreal Canadiens’ Defenseman David Savard

Despite expressing his preference to remain in Montreal, Savard’s contract lacks a no-trade clause, leaving the door open for potential moves. Montreal’s General Manager, Kent Hughes, could leverage the demand for Savard to bolster the team’s future prospects by securing additional draft assets.

The Lightning’s interest in Savard comes at an opportune time, with defenseman Mikhail Sergachev on long-term injured reserve, freeing up salary cap space for potential acquisitions.

According to NHL trade rumors, the Canadiens are seeking a substantial return for Savard, including a first-round pick and a top prospect. With Savard under contract for one more year at a reasonable $3.5 million average annual value (AAV), he presents an appealing option for teams looking beyond short-term rentals.
