Bruins Lock Up 'Irreplaceable' Marc Savard They don’t call him “the disher” for nothing. And that’s exactly what makes him so valuable to the Bruins.

Center Marc Savard has led the Bruins in points for the past three seasons because of his pass-first mentality, and the Bruins brass likes what it sees from him, as evidenced by the seven-year contract extension given to Savard on Tuesday.

Savard isn’t only an asset on the ice; he’s an asset in the dressing room, where his irreplaceable attitude has proven crucial in helping the B’s to prosper.

NESN’s Naoko Funayama discusses Savard’s contract extension and its impact on the rest of the team on Tuesday’s edition of SportsDesk.
