The Boston Bruins are not expecting center Marc Savard to play in the upcoming 2011-12 season, according to the Bruins Blog on Boston.com.
Savard has not been examined recently by team doctors. But Savard is still experiencing post-concussion syndrome, more than seven months after his 2010-11 season – and possibly his career – ended on Jan. 22.
“Marc Savard won’t play this year,” said GM Peter Chiarelli. “Nothing has changed in our monitoring. He’ll be examined and he’ll be declared unfit to play.”
… this is a real shame. Savard is a former New York Ranger and is signed with Boston up until the 2016-17 season.
“Based on what I see, what I hear, what I read, and what I’m told, it’s very unlikely Marc will play again,” Chiarelli said
… and just like that because of a dirty play by Pittsburgh Penguins goon Matt Cooke it looks like Savard’s career just may very well be over. If anyone remembers the hit, Cooke made next to no effort to shift his momentum or to go lower on Savard.
In my book, it was a deliberate hit with intention to injure. That is Matt Cooke’s game. Why he is still allowed to be a National Hockey League player is beyond me as he is nowhere near professional.
