With the news that Marc Savard will miss the entire 2011-12 season and potentially not play in the NHL ever again, the Bruins will be losing one of the game’s premier centers.
When healthy, Savard was the type of player who could change a game with his playmaking ability, especially on the power play, where the Bruins struggled last season despite hoisting Lord Stanley at season’s end.
B’s general manager Peter Chiarelli and the rest of the Bruins will have some questions to answer moving forward, although the well-being of Savard is what matters most.
The Boston Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa, who broke the news of Savard’s future, dropped by NESN Daily to discuss the Savard situation with NESN’s Jack Edwards.
