Chiarelli on T&R: Savard ‘more than likely’ head to LTIR

Chiarelli

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli had a lot to say during his weekly radio hit with Toucher & Rich on 98.5 The Sports Hub today.

Chiarelli said that center Marc Savard will meet with doctors today but there might not be any major revelations about Savard’s future for a couple days. Chiarelli plans to meet with Savard and his agent Larry Kelly over the weekend.

When asked about LTIR for the concussed center, Chiarelli conceded that Savard will “more than likely” wind up going on that list.

•As for Daniel Paille, Chiarelli said there’s a hearing with the league this morning to determine supplemental punishment, if there is any, for the hit last night that earned the forward a game misconduct.

•And as for reports that the Bruins will only look in-house to replace Savard going forward, Chiarelli said that for right now the Bruins are going to look at Zach Hamill. But going forward, he’ll look to replace Savard best he can — either through another player in the organization or trade.

Chiarelli said that there aren’t many centers available right now, but he sees that position as a need to fill and he is also looking to add a defenseman.
