Savard to Join Bruins for Practice Soon?

Injured Bruins center Marc Savard is expected to start skating with the team within the next 2-3 days, according to GM Peter Chiarelli. Savard has apparently made progress since “ramping up” his workouts.

”He’s doing much, much better,” Chiarelli told the Globe. ”He has been symptom-free for a while now, increasing his skating…all in all, he looks good.”

Savard, who was diagnosed with post-concussion stress syndrome including depression before the season, is not expected to return to the ice with the club for another 6-8 weeks.

Analysis

With David Krejci out with a concussion of his own, the Bruins are a little thin at center. Expect Patrice Bergeron and Tyler Seguin to fill the center slots on the top two lines.

With the 33-year-old Savard out and the Bruins winning, I think it would better serve both Savard and the B’s if the center takes his time in returning. Why risk re-injury or serious longterm effects now? The Bruins could use a healthy Savard in the postseason, assuming they make it that far.
