Meanwhile, Peter Chiarelli, in an interview on 98.5 The Sports Hub this morning, reiterated that the timetable on Marc Savard’s return from his current bout of post-concussion in uncertain and that a recent report that he could miss the entire season is false. He was hesitant to offer any actual details on the situation, however, and sounded rather guarded and tense while discussing it. “It could be two weeks, it could be a month…we don’t know.”

He also disclosed that it was “later in summer” when “he told us” about the symptoms, feeding a small amount of fuel to the conspiracy fires that suggest there might be more to this than simply a medical issue. He played dumb when asked whether or not the news came after Savard spoke publicly about his displeasure about the team’s obvious attempts to trade him this off season.

This won’t be the last we hear of this issue, you can be sure.

    Bondarchuk and Boychuk? Too bad you couldn’t get Anton Babchuk out of the KHL and Richard Matvichuk out of retirement, you could monopolize “chuk” defenders.

  2. Ken Socrates Says:

    With Dave Andreychuck at LW and Clint Malarchuk in goal? Maybe throw in Chuck Kobasew for a laugh.

  3. nightfly Says:

    Well, Keith Tkachuk is still, technically, an active player… You could have Steve Konowalchuk coaching and really make it a theme!

    Here’s where I need to admit that the first name for this blog that I came up with was Puck Amuck.

    Or should that have been Amok? Never quite decided.
