LTIR Looks Likely For Bruins' Savard

News: The Bruins are expected to place Marc Savard (concussion) on Long-Term Injured Reserve, Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Marc Savard hasn't suited up since the 2010-11 season, when he was sidelined with yet another head injury after playing just 25 games. The long-term injury exception will allow the Bruins to clear just over $4 million from their salary cap payroll for next season. The team will also use the bonus cushion for an estimated $4.2 million worth of Jarome Iginla's new contract, leaving them enough space to sign Tuukka Rask, who will need a hefty pay increase to stay in Boston.

Bruins' Savard Headed To IR, As Expected

News: Marc Savard (post-concussion symptoms) will be placed on the Bruins' injured reserve list, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: At this point, Marc Savard is not expected to resume his NHL career, with the IR move giving the Bruins added salary cap flexibility heading into the season.

Bruins' Savard (Concussion) Headed To Boston To Be Officially Ruled Out For Season

News: Marc Savard (concussion) will appear in Boston this week and be declared unfit to play by the Bruins.
Analysis: Marc Savard is due about $4 million per season through 2016-17, but is still experiencing post-concussion symptoms, prompting speculation the team could place him on long-term injured reserve. Such a move would allow the team to exceed this season's $70.2 million cap and try to bolster the roster elsewhere.

Bruins' Savard (Concussion) Not Optimistic He'll Play Again

News: Marc Savard (concussion) doesn't expect to get clearance from doctors to return to the NHL again, according to a post on his Twitter account.
Analysis: Marc Savard, 35, hopes that he can still make a return to the NHL, but it's looking increasingly unlikely with doctors telling him there's "no chance" he will return. Even after sitting out all of last season, it appears that Savard's recurring concussion symptoms don't bode well for his chances.

Bruins' Savard Still Hopes To Play Again

News: Marc Savard continues to hold out hope that he can return to the NHL but realizes the odds are against him.
Analysis: He still suffers from symptoms like headaches and memory loss, and admitted that "... it's tough to see a bright future right now." But he has not given up hope. He is signed through 2016-17 for a cap hit of just over $4 million per year but won't be eligible to receive that if he retires.

Bruins' Savard To Miss Season With Post-Concussion Syndrome

News: Marc Savard is expected to miss the 2011-12 season as the result of post-concussion syndrome, which has lingered for seven months, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: "Marc Savard won't play this year," said Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli. "Nothing has changed in our monitoring. He'll be examined and he'll be declared unfit to play." The report adds that Savard's career could also be coming to a close. Assuming he does hang up his skates for good, he'll finish with 706 points (207 G, 499 A) in 807 career games between the Rangers, Flames, Thrashers and Bruins.

Headaches Persist For Bruins' Savard: Won't Be At Camp

News: Savard (post-concussion syndrome) is still complaining of headaches and there has been little change in his condition overall, reports the Boston Globe.
Analysis: His season ended on Jan. 22 on a hit by former teammate Matt Hunwick and barring a complete and immediate turnaround in his condition, Savard will not be at training camp in September. At 34, he has to be wondering about the fate of his career; we are, too.

Status Of Bruins' Savard Uncertain

News: Savard is slated to be back in Boston once or twice this summer to meet with doctors, but at this point it is unknown if/when he'll be able to return to NHL action, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Given Savard's concussion history, notably his troubling slow progress from his most recent concussion, the report notes that there is a growing belief around the Bruins that he has probably played his last NHL contest. If that's the case, the team would lose a gifted playmaker, but in truth, unless Savard makes remarkable progress this offseason, that's preferable to seeing him exposed to further violent contact, something that's impossible to avoid in pro hockey.

Bruins' Savard Still Dealing With Concussion issues.

News: Though Savard said that he's feeling "better," he is still battling short-term memory problems five months after suffering his latest concussion, NECN.com reports. "I'm feeling better. I still have my days. The memory is the biggest thing for me and the mornings are kind of tough," said Savard. "The memory stuff is really terrible and hopefully it gets better."
Analysis: Savard was able to join his teammates for the Bruins' Stanley Cup celebration this weekend, but the road ahead for him career-wise remains murky. According to Savard, the possibility of playing again "is really the furthest thing from (his) mind right now." In other words, the B's gifted playmaker needs to get (and stay) healthy in general before he even considers suiting up as a professional hockey player again.

Bruins' Savard Still Ailing

News: GM Peter Chiarelli says that Savard (concussion) is still suffering from headaches and memory loss, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis: That's pretty discouraging, given that Savard suffered his most recent concussion Jan. 22. At this point, simply getting him healthy in general is the focus, with his playing future very much in question.

Bruins' Savard Still Dealing With Concussion Symptoms

News: Savard is still dealing with post-concussion symptoms, which include headaches, irritability, and memory lapses, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Savard, who suffered a moderate concussion Jan. 22, is slated to return to Boston for re-evaluation next week. The playmaking pivot has already been shut down for the season, so at this point it's more about simply getting him healthy in general than worrying about if/when he will play in the NHL again.

Bruins' Savard Done For Season

News: Savard (concussion) has been placed on long-term injured reserve and will miss the remainder of the regular season as well as the playoffs, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis: The move paves the way for the Bruins to bolster their lineup with the extra cap room it provides the team with. Meanwhile, Savard said that he hopes to continue his hockey career, so for the time being at least, he doesn't appear to be considering retirement.

Bruins' Savard To Address Press

News: Savard (concussion) will hold a press conference Monday at which he is expected to declare his season to be over, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: It's all but official that Savard is done for the year and once that is determined, the Bruins will be able to place him on long-term IR, which will give the team the cap relief needed to replace him with another player. Whether the Bruins plan to bolster their scoring punch or add another blueliner remains to be seen, but in the short term, Savard's absence opens the door for budding playmaker Zach Hamill to stick around for a while.

Bruins' Savard Could Be Shut Down

News: Reports have surfaced that Savard, who suffered a concussion two weeks ago, is expected to sit out the rest of the season, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Losing Savard's playmaking skills would be a hit to the Boston offense, but if he is indeed shut down (and placed on long-term injured reserve) the team would gain the cap relief needed to add another player to the mix. As for Savard's long-term future, retirement may be a consideration, but it's way too early to get a handle on whether or not that's in the cards.

B's Savard Remains Sidelined

News: Savard (concussion) remained sidelined for Saturday's loss to the Sharks.
Analysis: At this point, the Bruins are expected to wait until next week to reveal more information about the star pivot's status. Although he's technically day-to-day, it looks like he could be out for quite awhile given his history of head injuries.

Bruins' Savard To Meet With Doctors

News: Savard is expected to undergo further testing after suffering a moderate concussion Jan. 22, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Savard, who is suffering from postconcussion syndrome, may not return to the ice for the B's this season. "We'll get him reassessed and reevaluated," GM Peter Chiarelli said Wednesday. "As far as shutting him down for the rest of the year, that's a possibility. We'll see where he's at." Given his history with concussions, it's not unlikely that Savard has dressed for the last time this season.

Bruins' Savard Out 'At Least' A Month

News: Savard (concussion) is unlikely to return for "at least" a month, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: We expect the Bruins to be cautious with Savard. After all, post-concussion syndrome caused him to miss the first 23 games this season and now he's dealing with yet another concussion, this one considered moderate. All you can do at this point is hold out hope that he can make a full recovery.

Bruins' Savard Diagnosed With Concussion

News: Savard was diagnosed with a moderate concussion Monday, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Savard met with doctors Monday who confirmed the diagnosis that everyone feared. The team does not have a projected timetable for Savard's recovery, but given the player's history of head trauma, he could miss up to several weeks.

Bruins' Savard Being Checked Out In Boston

News: Savard, who absorbed a head shot Saturday, is being examined by doctors in Boston on Monday, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Savard and the Bruins could know more about his condition later Monday, but either way, the earliest he could play is Wednesday against the Panthers. With the All-Star Game on tap after that, Savard would have to be feeling pretty spry Monday for him to have a shot to play before the break.

Bruins' Savard Sent Back To Boston To Be Re-Evaluated

News: Savard, who absorbed a head shot Saturday against the Avalanche, was sent to Boston following the game to be re-evaluated, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Given Savard's history of head injuries, this is not insignificant news. That said, coach Claude Julien said that Savard was not showing any concussion-related symptoms following the hit. "He seemed fine when I talked to him," Julien said. "So we're hoping it's all minor."

Another Head Injury For Bruins' Savard

News: Savard suffered another head injury in Saturday's game against Colorado and did not return, ESPNBoston.com reports.
Analysis: Savard went head-first into the boards in the second period and had to be helped off the ice. For a player who missed the first 23 games of the season due to post-concussion syndrome and has suffered through numerous concussions throughout his career, this is especially scary and will likely lead to questions about whether it's smart for Savard to continue playing. He will return to Boston for further evaluation.

Bruins' Savard Plays As Expected

News: As expected, Savard was able to play Tuesday despite hitting his head on the side boards Saturday afternoon against Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Savard picked up an assist Tuesday in what ended up as a 3-2 win over the Hurricanes. It appears that Savard, who's had concussion problems, dodged a serious injury this time around.

Bruins' Savard Feels Okay After Saturday Hit

News: Savard, who went down to the ice Saturday against the Penguins after being checked into the boards in the third period, indicated Sunday that he was fine and ready to play, the Boston Globe reports. "Just a little sore in the neck on one side," Savard said Sunday.
Analysis: The report notes that Savard "felt woozy" Saturday after the hit, but it doesn't sound as though he actually had his bell rung, which would of course be a concern, given his concussion history. Either way, it looks like he'll be out there Monday against the Hurricanes.

Bruins' Savard Suffers Hit To Head

News: Savard, who was only now starting to get back up to speed after a return from a significant concussion, hit his head on the side boards Saturday afternoon on a check from Penguins' defenseman Derek Engelland.
Analysis: Engelland's forearm hammered Savard's head into the boards and the center was down on all fours for a while. To Engelland's defense, Savard did duck a little; the hit would have been to his chest otherwise. Savard was able to finish the game but told reporters after the game that he felt woozy. He didn't have a headache -- something that dogged him for months after his last head hit -- but the next 24 hours will be critical going forward. Concussion symptoms are compounded with each successive hit; we are more than a little concerned for this talented center.

Savard Grabs Winner For Boston

News: Savard notched the game-winning goal Monday against Toronto, his first in seven contests.
Analysis: Savard's been a little slow since returning from a concussion, with six points in 15 games, but he has points in three of the last four. His talent is undeniable and he could be a major factor for Boston. He could be finding his stride, but don't expect the world.
