I'm not going to claim to have any inside info here. Is there a reason Savard hasn't said he's never going to play again? If he did, would there be an issue with him not filing retirement papers? Or is there the slimmest of chances that he might eventually want to give this one more shot if given a clean bill of health?

I thought he was being traded to Montreal at the deadline. Who knew?

God DAMN that pissed me off this season. Give us back our 90 point center and the best passer in the game and maybe I'll consider it.

Did you fail to read this part of what you posted? "but in no event beyond the expiration date of the fixed term of his contract, which fixed
term shall in no event be deemed to include any option period
related to a playing season after the League Year in which the
injury occurred." If Savard retires he is no longer under contract and this clause would not apply to him.

That's why the Islanders activated Rick DiPietro last week, so they wouldn't have to pay him during a work stoppage.

As for Savard, this thread is about a year to late.
Cool thanks for the heads up didn't know that! Good for Marc.

Makes it less likely that he'd stick around to collect the league minimum his last year or two.

sign....As always I wish Marc the best.

Savvy needs to do what is best for himself.

I just hope his life can get back to nornal with no head problems.

"Doctor, it hurts when I do this."

"Then don't do that."

I for one am ecstatic that Savvy apparently isn't suffering any symptoms (or at least not complaining), but he's not doing anything more strenuous than playing golf. He's not lifting weights or skating or undergoing physical contact, but if he can get through an average person's day without suffering nausea or vertigo or headaches I'll stand up and cheer.

As others have noted, he won't collect his money if he retires, and it does the Bruins' cap no harm if he stays on the payroll. And IMHO he deserves every last penny.

Too late. They used it in 2010-2011 (twice, before he got healthy & after he got hurt again) and unless they can move Thomas' K, they'll have to use it next season (of course, depending on the new CBA, whether there is a season, etc.)

Shortest memories ever found on hfboards. Somehow using his LTIR 2 out of 3 seasons is now "never"

Agree with everything except the bolded. How do you figure it does the team no harm?

If Savard's salary causes a cap difficulty, they can put him on the LITR, isn't that correct? By "payroll" I mean he's still getting paid, not that his salary is counted against the cap.

I suppose it causes Jacobs some personal harm, but I don't think it hamstrings the Bruins when it comes to personnel moves.
