Column: Savard situation serves as reminder not to rush

At this point, the Bruins players and other skaters throughout the NHL should look at Savard with hope that he can make a comeback, and also with perspective that they could easily be in Savard’s shoes. It’s dangerous to return too soon from any injury, but when it comes to head ailments there should be no messing around. You never know, you might suffer a reoccurrence of the injury’s symptoms and have hundreds of people scream that you’re a faker.

For now, Savard is an example of what goes wrong when someone messes around with a concussion. For his and the Bruins’ sake, hopefully he turns into an example of a player that overcame a nagging case of post-concussion syndrome to make a triumphant return to elite NHL status.
