Marc Savard - ALL - updates and discussion here

Does anyone have an update on his recovery? Hopefully he will be symptom-free by the start of summer. It would be great if we could actually get a healthy Marc Savard next year.

Our lineup would look something like this:

Lucic/Krejci/Horton
Marchand/Bergeron/Peverley
Gagne/Savard/Seguin
Paille/Campbell/Thornton

Keep in mind, Savard will only be 34 next year, so physically he is still right around his prime.

My gut tells me we will be lucky to have him back at all.

And if so, I doubt he's the same guy.

I think he's entered Lafontaine & Lindros territory.

I doubt we'll ever see Savard back at the form he was from 06-09. Whatever happens, the most important thing for him is he live a normal life after his hockey career, whenever that will be or has been.

I would just hope he worries about his life before hockey. If he can't do it any longer and it's too risky, don't risk it and move on.

I hope he comes back for next years playoffs. Give him plenty of rest and use the cap space to strengthen the team. No matter what he will be past his best and I am not sure we can rely on him to center a top line. If someone goes down you bring him back with 30 or so games and if not he rests until the playoffs. With his front loaded deal this might be a pretty attractive option.

Sadly I think you are correct.

Hell still help the powerplay and be very good in that facet. Even strength I dunno.

Of course a Habs fan would say that

That said I agree

I was a little surprised to see Coach Claude quoted saying this yesterday (re: what else? Pachioretty):

"No one wants to see a player hurt. We have (concussed Marc) Savard now who might be done for his career. Nobody wants to see that on your team or another team."

Not that I don't know it's a possibility, but I don't think I've seen/heard anyone in the org come out and say it.

I hope Savvy will be alright and if he does retire than he had a good career. I'm not trying to sound like a dick but the one positive is we won't have to worry about that contract and we will have an extra 4 million.

As of earlier this week, Chiarelli said that Savard was still experiencing symptoms of the concussion (headaches, dizziness, etc) but wasn't feeling any effects of depression like the first time. Didn't sound too good.

I'm going to sound like an ******* for saying this but if he plays again hes an idiot. Its not worth risking another concussion and not being able to live a normal life to try and play again.

I really hope Savard can come back next season and recover like Bergeron has. I was watching some highlights the other day and i really miss watching him play he was fun to watch, a very creative and passionate player.

Again, nothing in the gazzette regarding the little cheap shots that never get answered for. The hacks after the whistle, the trash talk, things like Plekanec's swing at Horton's head.

These guys finally get squared a few games ago, and it's boo hoo woe is me, "Campbell hit him w/ an elbow pad!". Get real. If you don't want a team that gets beaten up for their BS on the ice, which includes embellishing injuries every 10 seconds. Then at least draft players capable of using the big boy urinal in the men's room, and stop complaining.

Maybe they have a box for Camalleri to stand on. That, or Hal Gill lifts them up.

Anyway, I'd guess we're not going to know anything on Savard until training camp. And, I think Wally's right. Either way, I doubt we get the same guy back. And, if he does get it back, it's going to take some time for him to get there. The way some people treated Bergeron, I'm not really looking forward to it. I am glad however someone finally appointed themselves the shepherd of this team. Just sorry it took all of this for it to finally happen.

I honestly think I may not enjoy watching Savard play again, always thinking about if he gets popped again, and what the repercussions might be. I sure do miss his play though.

I have a gut feeling from what I've seen before and just the way this all went down that sadly we may never see Savy in uniform again.

34 is not exactly near his physical prime - especially given the fact he's been injured essentially 2 whole seasons.

The sad truth is that he's never going to the guy he once was. If he can come back, he'll still have some of his special abilities, but he's never going to be the same.

Maybe he should sit it out for two full years and try again when he is 35, although it would likely be with another team. A lot of players like him are productive though ages 35, 36, 37.

None of us knows . I would rather wait and see.

IF he can come back (and thet would only be with the OK from the Drs) I won't say he can't be as good as he was before. Bergy looks great out there.

I will be very sad for Marc, the B's and the fans if he is done. I love the positive energy Savvy brings. I really miss watching him play. Those "savvy" passes are amazing.

So until I hear otherwise I am going to hope he can return.

Dear Marc, Ladyfan misses you

A few weeks ago I was on Youtube watching some B's highlight videos and I came across the video of Savvy scoring in OT against Philly in the Playoffs.
Seeing Savvy celebrate and toss his stick into the crowd as he gets swarmed by his teammates made my eyes well up with tears.
It makes my blood boil when I think about what Matt Cooke did to this man. I hope he can come back at some point and play again, but my gut feeling on this based on the fact that he is still experiencing symptoms 2 months after the Hunwick hit and recent comments from Claude...
I think his career is over. I hope I'm wrong.

Savard's never been very good at avoiding/absorbing contact. I hate to say it, but if he does come back, it's only a matter of time. At his age and after all that time away from the game. Unlike Bergeron, he doesn't have youth on his side. Bergeron took a full two summers to get back into pre-concussion game shape.

If he does make a comeback, I think he'll have to change his game considerably. He can't be a the slow puck dominant playmaking center he was in his prime.

That point is still very far away though. Lets just hope he gets better.

Sad to say but I don't think it is worth even having him back. He has had so many troubles with concussions that he'll likely never be the Savard we once knew. And to think just one more bad hit could end it for him completely. If he ever does come back he's definitely risking alot.
