Marc Savard Turns To Golf

from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun, There are days when Savard still suffers symptoms, but his health has improved — though he realizes a potential NHL comeback is not likely in the cards. “It’s going to be tough to play again,” said Savard, who had 207 goals and 706 points in the regular season and added eight goals and 22 points in the post-season. “I listen...

Marc Savard, LTIR and the Salary Cap: What It All Means.

I know Savard’s LTIR status is brought up a lot, so here we go. Before Free Agency starts in about 45 minutes, lets talk about Savard’s LTIR money. Teams who have LTIR candidates (Boston, Philly) DO NOT get IR cap relief in the summer, but those teams are given a 10% overage allowance to spend on top of the cap limit. Once Savard qualifies for LTIR, the Bruins can designate him...

Bruins looking at $4.75 million cap penalty

The salary cap numbers are finally beginning to filter in for the Boston Bruins for next season, and they are not very good at all. The excellent, accurate web site www.capgeek.com has the Bruins pegged for a $4.75 bonus overage penalty for the 2014-15 season, and that essentially means it’s dead money that Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli can’t utilize for this upcoming...

Quotes from Savard’s TSN Interview

Marc Savard was arguably one of the best playmakers in the NHL before Matt Cooke decided to go King Henry VIII on him on the ice. It spurred Rule 48 and every hit — legal or otherwise — being put under a microscope. Last night, Savard joined the folks on TSN for an interview. Here are some quotes (taken from PuckDaddy), and some tweets: On Rule 48: “At the end of the day, I...

The Bruins May Need To Get Creative To Re-Sign Jarome Iginla

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, This is how the Bruins locked up Iginla to a one-year contract with a $1.8 million cap hit. They promised Iginla $4.2 million in bonuses for a possible payday of $6 million. So far, Iginla has been well worth the investment. The drawback, as the Bruins always knew, is how it will affect next year’s books. The Bruins are projected...

Brad Marchand, Marc Savard Offer Support To Rich Peverley

Hockey is a very close-knit community, so it came as no surprise when Rich Peverley’s collapse during Monday night’s Dallas Stars-Columbus Blue Jackets game was followed quickly by an outpouring of support from around the NHL. Some of it came from players who had been teammates of the Stars winger in the past (Brad Marchand, Marc Savard, Evander Kane), and some from others just...

Lost in the hubbub of the the World Series last night was the Boston Bruins playing in Buffalo against a terrible hockey team. Everything was going swimmingly for most of the game.

Bruins fans harass Matt Cooke in penalty box

Matt Cooke is notoriously know as one of the most disliked players in the NHL. It’s no secret that Bruins fans have a great disdain for him after what he did to Marc Savard back in 2010, so I’m sure Cooke wasn’t surprised to get this response when he entered the penalty box in Boston last night during Game 3.
