Marc Savard hasn't played a game since 2010-11 and even though he is still dealing with post-concussion syndrome, he is feeling better.

"I'm doing good. Things are getting better for me," Savard told TSN 1050 in a radio interview last week. "I still have some issues, but I can't complain; life's pretty good. I've got a newborn, a son that's playing hockey and a daughter that's dancing, so things are pretty busy for me." He still has three years left on his remaining contract with the Bruins at a salary cap hit of $4,027,143 per season, which gets placed on long-term injured reserve.

Marc Savard, who is still suffering from concussion-like symptoms, will be in Boston this week and the Bruins will declare him unfit to play.

Savard is under contract through 2016-17 at an annual average salary of just a little over $4 million. The Bruins may not have to place him on long-term injured reserve to start the season though. "We've got a lot of flexibility this year," said GM Peter Chiarelli. "Do I suspect we'll use Savard's LTI? It depends. [Owner Jeremy] Jacobs has allowed us to pursue those types of players. He wants to win. I think if we presented a compelling case, I think he'd let us use it."

Marc Savard commented on his Twitter page last week that he is "very interested" in coaching at the OHL level.

His chances of returning from post-concussion syndrome are slim and back in October he said that he didn't see a comeback attempt coming in his "foreseeable future." Savard has been participating in the NHLPA process during the lockout though and he's made his opinions of frustration, which are common among the players, known. It's good to see that he's doing some thinking about his future in case his attempts to come back don't work out.

Marc Savard (concussion) doesn't see a comeback attempt in his "foreseeable future."

Savard did make an attempt to workout on Monday, but whether or not he'll ever play in the NHL again is still up in the air. "I do in fact hope there is still a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel to play but that rest on the doctor shoulders so far," Savard tweeted before ending with the hashtag #nochance. Savard hasn't played in an NHL game since Jan. 22, 2011.

Marc Savard (concussion) isn't close to being ready to play hockey and it remains to be seen if he'll ever play in another NHL game.

"I’ve had a lot of issues obviously," Savard said. "They were a lot of different things. This year I was at home a lot and I tried to help out my son coaching and getting on the ice a little bit. Even doing just [getting on the ice coaching] I wouldn’t feel well afterward: lightheadedness, a little bit of an upset stomach all the time. But the biggest issue I’ve had, of course, is the memory issues. It’s very frustrating. It’s something I hope I don’t have to deal with for the rest of my life." Savard hasn't played since Jan. 22, 2011. He also added that he wishes there was a "black and white rule for head shots."

Marc Savard (concussion) is having a hard time seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

"Right now, the way I’m still feeling and the daily issues I’m having, it’s tough to see a bright future right now," Savard said. "It’s tough. I still have my tough days." He's been experiencing both memory loss and headaches. Savard is still signed through 2016-17 and he's not expected to retire. He did say, that he'd still be happy if it turns out that he never plays again. "I’m on the Stanley Cup. I got a ring," Savard said. Although Savard was limited to 25 games last season, the Bruins managed to get his name on the Cup.

Marc Savard is reportedly still battling post-concussion symptoms.

GM Peter Chiarelli said back in August that "it's very unlikely Marc will play again" and what little that's been reported about his condition since hasn't been encouraging. Savard is signed through the 2016-17 campaign.

Marc Savard (concussion) was examined recently in his hometown of Peterborough, Ontario and there was no change to his status.

He is still suffering from post-concussion syndrome symptoms and isn't expected to play in 2011-12. The Bruins don't need to place Savard on their long-term injured reserve list because they are well below the salary cap, but if they need to free up the room during the year then the option is open.

Marc Savard's (concussion) name will appear on the Stanley Cup along with the rest of the 2010-11 Boston Bruins, according to Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli.

Savard played in just 25 games last season and no playoff contests due to multiple concussions. Players usually need to play in at least 41 games or the Stanley Cup finals to get their name engraved, but it looks like they'll make an exception for Savard. Chiarelli doesn't expect Savard to play in the 2011-12 season.

Marc Savard (concussion) is not expected to play during the 2011-12 campaign by the Boston Bruins.

The 34-year-old center has been experiencing post-concussion syndrome since going down on Jan. 22 and his career could be in jeopardy as well. "Based on what I see, what I hear, what I read, and what I'm told, it's very unlikely Marc will play again," said GM Peter Chiarelli. "Now, knowing the uncertainty of this injury, there's always a chance [he could play]. But based on what I'm told, it's very unlikely he'll play. As an employer, I support him and hope he gets back to living a healthy life."

Marc Savard is still suffering from post-concussion symptoms.

Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli would like to see Marc Savard and Steve Kampfer's names engraved onto the Stanley Cup.

With the exception of backup goaltenders, the NHL typically requires that a player play in a Stanley Cup finals game or participate in at least 41 contests. Savard and Kampfer fall short of those guidelines. "I don’t know what the process is," Chiarelli said. "I’ve given it a little bit of thought. You know certainly those two deserve to be on it, so we’ll see what we can do to get them on it and go from there."

We wouldn't be shocked to see Marc Savard (concussion) attend Game Three in TD Garden in Boston Monday night.

He was an inspiration to Boston in a win over Tampa and could raise the Bruins' morale should he feel healthy enough to attend Monday night's contest. Savard is still experiencing post-concussion symptoms and is no where close to returning to the ice. That said, he can still make an impact by cheering his teammates on.
