Mard Savard's concussion

How is the recovery going? Does he have a chance of playing again?

Very few updates. He's still not 100%, but obviously better than in the first couple of months. I don't see a chance in hell he ever comes back.

Wasn't there a report during last summer that he still wasn't allowed to be alone with his kids?

That has to be the first time I've heard Savard called that.

I have never heard anything like this... I believe he is coaching his kids' youth hockey team, I don't think he would be involved with about 20 kids if he wasn't even allowed with his own...

Why the hell wouldn't he be allowed anyway?

I don't think that's the case.

That's a couple of months old, but I think those are fairly accurate, especially since they include his own words.

He's doing ok, his headaches have gone down but he's still having memory issues

He tweeted recently that he is happy and in love so, what else does the guy need to do?

He'll never play pro hockey again

One more concussion and the guy would probably end up a semi-vegetable for the rest of his life.

No need to risk it.

Exactly, he's had a very accomplished career. There's no reason to risk even further injuries.

I'd be shocked if he played again. Doctors will never clear him.

One of the better (by far) Bruins in recent times done, because of Cooke. Yeah, **** you Cooke!

It's a shame, I was thrilled when he signed that long term cap-friendly deal and planned on several more 90+ point seasons from him.

Marc Savard is done!

He's got little to no motivation to come back to hockey and understandly.

He has moved onto the next phase of his life which is spending more time with family and his sporting passion of being an extremely good golfer.

Savard was a very immature arrogant weasel type player in junior and early on in his career. He matured dramatically later on in his career. Just because the guy is an incredible athlete doesn't necessarily mean terms like "warm hearted" are the best words to describe him.

He wouldn't come out of the dressing room to say hello to his ~13 year old cousin after a loss to Ottawa.

Still unfortunate that he's in such a bad way, obviously.

After a long time of headaches and memory problems, he's finally enjoying his life now. He's enjoying coaching his kids and is playing golf a lot.

He obviously want to, and has reported saying he wants to come back, but if he does, he's said it won't be until the end of his career. Now that he's enjoying his life and is actually healthy, I doubt he, (or his doctors,) take the risk of losing it all for nothing.
