He’s baaaaaaaaaack…well soon maybe…

2 Dec
Today is a happy day for me.  Not only is in Thursday and that means free sandwiches in the office (SCORE!), but today is also the day that Marc Savard returned to the ice today for the Boston Bruins.  Like Balki Bartokimous, I do a dance of joy!
Savvy has been sidelined since the end of playoffs last season with post-concussion syndrome after a vicious hit by Matt Cooke.  Since then, he’s been hanging out and meeting with doctors to see when he’ll be able to return to the ice.  After the Bruins traded defenseman Matt Hunwick earlier this week (for former Terrier Colby Cohen, btdubs) to make room under the salary cap for Savard’s return, it seems as if the stage has been set for the B’s star centerman to return to the ice.   He might play tonight but more than likely he’ll return for Saturday’s game vs the Maple Leafs.

In every interview for what seems like the past two weeks, Savard declares that he is fit and ready to play.  You can just tell that he is chomping at the bit to get out there and bury some pucks but I greatly admire the Bruins for their patience at not rushing Marc’s return.  Seems like Peter Chiarelli, Cam Neely, B’s Coach Claude Julien, and the Bruins organization have their player’s best interests at heart.  Marc’s health far out weights the need for him to rush back to playing, risking another setback or worse, a hit that could potentially end his career forever.

Plus, as much as I hate to say it (because of my love of Savvy), they don’t really need him right now.  *gasp* Of course they could use him, because who doesn’t want one of their best forwards on the ice running the power play, but the B’s have been winning games without him.  Tim “The Tank” Thomas has been carrying the team on his shoulders and Horton, Seguin, Bergeron, and LOOOOOCH have been scoring so it isn’t like they are in dire straits. But it will be great to have Savard back on the ice with the spoked “B” on his chest mearly so we can see more of this…


And this….

Like House of Pain said...Jump around, jump around, jump up, jump up and get down..."

He’s like a little kid.  And I love it.

    Hooray for Savvy! And for the use of “BTDubs” in a sentence.

    He’s just so adorable. I want to make a papoose and carry him in it, like an adorable hockey baby.

    You can thank LV for the “BTDubs”. I love it and I ain’t afraid to use it.
