King on D&H: 'Very high opinion' of McCourty

Peter King of SI.com made an appearance on the Dale & Holley show Monday afternoon to talk about the NFL draft. King said draft insiders do not view Patriots coach Bill Belichick's wheeling and dealing with the same frustration as many fans. "They think he's brilliant," King said. "I'd say over the weekend I talked to ... maybe 11 different coaches, GMs, draft guys, whatever. I didn't find anybody who said, 'Pick somebody, will you?' They all admire the position the Patriots have themselves in."

 

Added King: "One of the reasons why I'm not killing them about any move they made in terms of trading down is very simple.

Savard reportedly unlikely, Vanek probable

According to WEEI's Michael Holley, Bruins center Marc Savard will not make his first appearance since March 7 when the B's host the Sabres in Game 6 of their series Monday night. Savard skated with the team Monday morning but did not address the media. He previously said he would have another neuro-psych test Monday afternoon to check on how he is recovering from his concussion. Bruins coach Claude Julien said only "No confirmation right now" when asked about Savard's availability following the moring skate.

 

Meanwhile, Sabres forward Thomas Vanek appears likely to make his return for Game 6. "All indications point to him playing," Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said Monday. Vanek has been out since sliding into the end boards and injuring his left ankle following a slash on the knee from Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk in Game 2.

Devils coach Lemaire steps down

New Jersey Devils coach Jacques Lemaire retired as coach following his team's opening-round upset loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. The 64-year-old said he doesn't have the energy to continue to coach, but he will remain with the Devils in a role not yet determined. Lemaire, who led New Jersey to the 1995 Stanley Cup, returned to the team last season for a second stint. The Devils were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs both seasons. A Hockey Hall of Famer, Lemaire won eight Stanley Cups as a player with the Montreal Canadiens from 1967-79. In addition to the Devils, he has coached the Canadiens and Minnesota Wild.
