Kukla's Korner Hockey

Marc Savard could not be a more pathetic figure during his Boston media meeting earlier this month, discussing post-concussion syndrome.
Without question, Savard’s future hockey-playing career is in grave doubt. His inability to fully suppress tears testified to the depression that engulfs a superior NHL talent. Meanwhile, a fully effective concussion cure remains as elusive as the culprit who thrust Savard into this unenviable state.
Matt Cooke remains a Penguins regular, a human torpedo on the ice, doing “his job.” The Pittsburgh agitator has paid his price in NHL justice while Savard questions whether he will ever have the luxury of taking another turn on a big-league rink.
One wonders if there could have been a better result for both victim and culprit.
