Boston Bruins center Marc Savard is still classifying himself and his battle with post-concussion syndrome as day-to-day.He last played in Colorado on Jan.22, 2011, when he suffered his most recent concussion on a hit by Matt Hunwick."Right now, the way I'm still feeling and the daily issues I'm having,
it's tough to see a bright future right now," he said. "It's tough, but
there's still some days when you want to get back and play. But again, I
know too if I possibly get hit again, what could happen. So it's a
day-by-day thing still. I'm still hoping that something happens that I
feel a lot better, said Savard on Saturday."He also said that his main issues are headaches, which have recently improved, and short-term memory loss.Savard is under contract until the end of the
2016-17 season, so an official retirement announcement may not come for some time.
