    Default Marc Savard update

    A few days old, but I just saw it now. He gave an interview to TSN radio station in Toronto. He talks about Matt Cooke, the Bruins, and some other stuff.

    As for how he's feeling:

    ďIt was a tough time all in all. Iím just happy with my life right now.Ē

    Savard said he still sees ďdotsĒ in hot weather and when kneeling down, and still has issues with migraines associated with the multiple concussions he suffered during his NHL career. Those are the sad realities for NHL players once the crowds and media attention die down.

    But the Bís big-ticket free agent, who jumped to Boston in the same summer as Zdeno Chara back in 2006, is feeling good enough these days to get on the golf course and help coach his childrenís hockey teams. Those are excellent quality of life steps for a player that wasnít pushed in that direction.

    ďIím doing good. Things are getting better for me,Ē said Savard. ďI still have some issues, but I canít complain; lifeís pretty good. Iíve got a newborn, a son thatís playing hockey and a daughter thatís dancing, so things are pretty busy for me.

    He was an exciting player to watch, and great to have on your fantasy team. Career ended way too soon.

    Thanks for sharing the update. I'm glad to hear things seem to be looking up for him again. Too bad his hockey career had to be cut short.

    Sounds like he has adjusted as well as possible, all things considered. Thankfully he had a decent long term contract in place to keep the dollars rolling in.

    Great to hear that he can enjoy the little things like coaching kids and golf. I can imagine that he was devastated to be forced to quit the game.

    Yeah, good to hear he's getting better. I was a big Savard fan. Tough to see him go out that way, but there are bigger things in life.

    I used to watch Marc Savard in Atlanta.
    A fantastic player with top level hockey sense.
    A player I really missed watching & hurt to see him removed from the game.

    Yes please. Either that or someone random in a bank or mall.... put his head through any hard surface and I'm good with that.

    Savard was a great fantasy asset and a very high IQ hockey player. Always knocked for his skating, dedication and attitude but I though he displayed a fine attitude and played hard and his attitude in this case I think is in line with his character. To think CGY let him go... Too bad he couldn't keep playing because I really enjoyed watching him play. Great, great passes.

    How are Cooke and Bertuzzi still in hockey?? Both guys they attacked haven't been the same since.. They should have had to find other jobs until their victims made full recoveries and returned to the ice..
