    I heard that he is going to re-iterate that the Too Many Men on the Ice in the Flyers' series was not his fault...

    Sounds like he'll be out for a little while.  Definitely no bluff, he's got depression to deal with among other things, and the depression makes it really hard to play at all, nevermind a responsible game.

    Agreed.  I truly never felt it was a bluff.  That never made sense to me.  He's a hockey player....which means he wants to play hockey.

    Here's my take (sorry Duinne - this is not a proclamation, just my opinion):  He passed his neuro exams and was cleared to play.  He returned to action and played in the Flyers series.  But he was never himself.  But he, and the team, figured the offseason would be enough to get over it.  And I think that he probably WAS feeling better.  And as workouts started to increase with intensity as training camp got closer, the symptoms returned.  It really isn't that surprising.

    That said, I have faith in the Bruins' medical staff when it comes to concussion based injuries.  Because of the Bergeron injury(ies), they know how to deal with them.

    Concussions are serious.  This isn't about hockey....it's about quality of life.  Depression is very serious....and is a common symptom or PCS.  Get well soon, Savvy.  But take your time.  We're gonna need you!!!

    Savard's comments did not sound encouraging at all.  On a human level, I hope he takes his time and takes care of himself.  The depression comments, in particular, were very concerning to me as it pertains to his personal well-being.

    From a team perspective, this will be interesting.  Is Savvy heading to LTIR with Sturm?  If so, that frees up cap room, would the team do anything to take advantage of the space?  Line combos will also need to be shaken up, I will assume that Krejci is now the #1 center.  Does the development with Savard put any additional pressure on PC to get the Bergeron extension done?

    Lines w/out Savard suggestion:
    Wheeler- Krejci- Horton
    Lucic- Seguin- Ryder
    Recchi- Bergeron- Caron
    Paille- Campbell- Thornton

    Savard may have other reasons to be depressed than PCS...

    Look at the quality of the comments of some of the fans that he plays for...

    Classy !

    I never felt it was a bluff either, I was just stating that for all the Bergeron cult members that they can't use the PCS bluff story as an excuse to chase him out of town.

    No, I think you're pretty much spot on. (As for the bluff thing, always a ridiculous notion. Nobody with any intelligence could seriously believe such a thing.)

    Obviously in the spring he passed the tests required for him to return to the ice.  But, as he said (and as I've pointed out previously), once Krejci went down, his responsibilities went up, and it just became too much. But, as he also said, he's a hockey player. Guys like him have to be at death's door before they'll take themselves out of the lineup.

    I'm glad at least that he's in Boston and able to spend some time with his teammates, as isolation and loneliness can exacerbate depression. Glad also that he realizes the fans are supporting him too. Well, most of us are.

    Amybe they'll send him to LTIR, making it a little bit less difficult to decide what to do with Spooner.
