If the Toronto Maple Leafs are interested in acquiring centre Marc Savard from the Boston Bruins, Brian Burke isn’t saying anything about it.

The Leafs’ President and general manager told Toronto’s Fan 590 radio station on Monday that while he’s exploring other options to acquire players, the Bruins’ No. 1 centre was not on the radar.

“The rumour – what I read anyway – is that Boston is looking to move this player,” he said. “We have some options presented to us over the weekend, trade wise, that do not involve this player (Savard ) that we are looking at.”

Reports over the weekend suggested that the two teams are talking about a draft picks and/or prospects deal for Savard , who could potentially be reunited with Bruin-turned-Maple Leaf Phil Kessel.

“Suffice it to say, the media are focused on one name,” Burke said. “And we are looking at multiple names – not including Marc Savard .”

The reports also indicated that such a deal would not involve Tomas Kaberle going the other way. The Leafs, however, have had their fair share of phone calls inquiring about the veteran blueliner’s services.

“We have four offers on Tomas Kaberle – one was a joke,” Burke told The Fan 590. “We are not committed on moving him, we are not taking the best offer. We’re going to keep him unless we get exactly what we need as an upgrade at forward.

    So what i get from this is that burke has offers that do not involve savard…..    does that mean there arent offers involving savard?

    I got a feeling that the big trade that my secret insider sources are telling me about is gonna happen this week. Put 2 and 2 together and only one answer comes out. Burke's gonna make a big splash. This trade is gonna be so big, you'll have to stand under a door way for safety.

    Kramer, is your secret source eklund?

  4. Kramer says:

    No, I don't like to brag, but I happen to know the guy who supplies the meat at the ACC. If you like lamb chops, sizzling bacon, and beef sausages, he's the man. All those guys connected with the ACC get all sorts of big rumors.

    So wait … 5 articles on the main page talking about how Savard could end up as a Leaf ….. then a 6th article to debunk all that?

    lol, like I said where there's smoke there's fire. You can't go crazy over every little blurb you read in the paper or online, but when all the major networks and radio stations are reporting similar things, there is usually something to it. So even though Burke is denying it, there's obviously some level of truth in there. We'll just have to wait and see how it materializes.
