As much as I love Savvy, I don't think he'd help the PP. The problem I see with the powerplay is a lack of instincts by both forwards and dmen...not a lack of coaching.

I think we all seriously overstate the roles of hockey coaches here as cop outs. I'm not saying that they just roll lines and nothing more cause that's not true. But with a powerplay, it's not something that's systematically planned out and coached on past line combos and formation.

Seguins development is much more crucial to the pp than a new coach

He can't make it any worse than it has been.
Well I was suggesting the B's find a place for him and pp coach would be good. I would love to see Savvy back .

Savy ran the PP like a genius, it’s something you can’t teach because his offensive instincts were off the charts good.


So true but his vision for how the pp should run might help . I couldn't hurt...right ?

I know it probably won't happen for many reasons mentionsed by posters but I know I would love to see him back behind the bench. He has so much positive energy and it rubs off on other players. Savvy was a blast to watch .

No he wouldn't have to officially retire. But I'm sure there would be an out clause in his contract that if he were able to play again ...... (I'll stop there because he'll never play again, it's just a formality)

Don't know if there was an intended sarcasm in his tweet. Without hearing him say it it's tough to tell. I do know the Petes will follow a lengthy process and make sure they do the right thing this time.

Reid is a great guy to talk to. Really cared but probably not the right guy for the job. I actually think Savvy as GM there would be a good move by the Petes. Apparently there have been a couple people inquire. Not sure if he's one of them.

Maybe he wants more Twitter followers than he wants to coach.

I like what Dan said.

I heard he loved golf and was thinking of trying to play after hockey on the PGA. So why not focus on that.

That's an understatement Andrew.

Dave Reid was a great guy. I would email him, even on an early Sunday morning and he'd answer right back. He always made time. But he did make some questionable trades.

I won't mention any names but someone made a connection yesterday ( one I think is just total coincidence ) But Reid's downfall started all the way back with the Spooner trade. He really didn't get enough in return for Spooner. Same thing last season when he traded away Austin Watson. Basically got nothing in return. And with Slater Koekkoek coming out and saying what he did had to be the final straw.

What's interesting is that all three players have the same agent. I'm sure its going to be read by someone, but as I said, I think its just coincidence.

As for Savvy, I can't say whether he has or hasn't inquired about the position, but he hasn't officially applied for it. I hope he does. Think it will be good for both Savvy and the Petes. He'll bring some stability to the franchise.

Savvy moves in with Seguin on November 2nd and doesn't move out until the B's powerplay is above 18%

I thought his best quality moving the puck was in throwing off the defensive unit with a creative choice of play. IMO Thornton is every bit as accurate, but sitting way up on the ninth floor it was always cool to see a five-man defensive unit react to a Savard pass with a giant swerve of their path in an alarmed state. He'd think of something that wasn't on anyone's radar screen. Panic over where he put the puck. Hilarious at times. I miss that, very creative, went a long way toward making up for what he lacked from a physical/athletic standpoint among those high-speed monsters.

Part of what he had to say was in my article I linked above.

But you can find the full context of what he had to say here http://www.thepeterboroughexaminer.c...sudbury-wolves

I guess we all know that Savvy won't be returning to PLAY in the NHL. I hold out some hope that he can help the B's another way...

I have said this many times...I love the positive energy he brings. He is a blast to watch. It would be fun to see him at the games...maybe behind the bench ??

Not every great player is a great coach but who knows with Marc ??

Poor Savvy. I just hope he gets better. Took Bergy 3 years and then some to get 100% back. Granted, his concussion wasn't as severe as Marc's. I still hope one day he'll return as we've seen crazier things happen.


Right now I hope he just continues to get well. I hope Cooke gets the runs tonight because I can't stand that POS doing this to him

Marc Savard sees no return to the Bruins in sight

Via Twitter on Monday, Marc Savard acknowledged the reality that every*body in the Bruins organization has accepted: The center’s NHL career is most likely over.

“For the fans that keep asking me, there is no comeback in the foreseeable future,” Savard posted. “I miss the game. It has given me everything I have today.”
