2010 NHL Free Agency: Savard trade to Calgary looking less likely

Jul 1, 2010, 2:55 PM EDT

Savard3.jpgEarlier today, as we neared the start of free agency, rumors started to pop up that had the Boston Bruins trading Marc Savard to the Calgary Flames.

There’s just one issue with that rumor, and one that seems to be the sticking point with that deal going down.

Robin Regehr, who would supposedly be the other piece of the trade, hasn’t been asked to waive his no-movement clause. Marc Savard, on the other hand, still hasn’t named Calgary as one of the teams he’d be willing to trade for.

As with anything around this time of year, anything can happen. But as of now, it just doesn’t seem like this trade is any closer to happening than it was when it was first rumored to be going down earlier today.
