Marc Savard: Likely ‘no chance’ of comeback

Posted By DJ Bean On October 22, 2012 @ 3:12 pm In General | 1 Comment

While there’s no news as to where things stand for a potential season, Marc Savard [1] took to Twitter Monday to give what at this point figures to be an annual reminder that he won’t be playing hockey.

The veteran center, who hasn’t played since suffering a concussion on Jan. 22, 2011, said that at this point there is “no chance” that he returns to the NHL [2]. Savard still has five years left on his seven-year, $28.05 million deal and technically has to take and fail his physical every year to be paid his contract. His cap number ($4.007 million) doesn’t go against the Bruins’ salary cap figure as long they put him on long-term injured reserve, which they did in the 2010-11 season when they acquired Tomas Kaberle [3].
