Marc Savard Still Experiencing “Tough Days”

from Jeff Z. Klein of the New York Times,

“The way I’m feeling, the day-to-day issues I’m having, it’s tough to see a bright future right now,” Savard said before Saturday’s Bruins-Rangers game. He was speaking to reporters at length for the first time since February.

“I still have my tough days,” Savard said, 363 days after a hit by Colorado’s Matt Hunwick sidelined him with his second major concussion. Savard said he would wait until after the end of the season to assess whether to try to return to active play.

He has been recovering at his home in Peterborough, Ontario, looking after his three children and coaching youth hockey; the young players, he said, are frightened about concussions. He was in Boston to announce that he was hosting a suite at TD Garden for Children’s Hospital pediatric patients suffering from the effects of head trauma.

“I know what these kids are going through,” Savard said.

Thanks for posting this Paul.  It’s sad that his story keeps getting shoved aside while a certain savior of hockey has a front page story every time he takes a dump.

Some day that POS Matt Cooke will get his.
