I don't get it. From the Boston Bruin's web site:
"Savard sustained a concussion during the Bruins/Avalanche game on Saturday, January 22, his second concussion in 10 months (first occurred March 7, 2010 at Pittsburgh). Savard played his first game of the 2010-11 season on December 2 after missing the season’s first 23 games with post-concussion symptoms. In 25 games this year, Savard registered two goals and eight assists for 10 points. "
I heard that Boston placing Savard on long term injured reserve frees up some cap space.
So if Boston gets salary relief because Savard is on Long Term Injured Reserve, why do the Pred's not get salary relief for Lombardi? Last I heard was that the Pred's did not qualify for salary relief because Lombardi had a prior concussion - I'm not understanding something here - anyone have an eduacated idea of what's going on?
