Marc Savard: Likely ‘no chance’ of comeback

While there’s no news as to where things stand for a potential season, Marc Savard 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. 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.

Tweeted Savard:
