Savard: Saturday return would be 'fun'
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins center Marc Savard reiterated on Tuesday that he will not be playing when the B's take on the Flyers in Philadelphia on Wednesday. He noted that though he's not ready to get back into games just yet, he isn't feeling particularly behind in any areas. 

 

"I feel like I'm skating good, and battling with a 6-foot-5 guy [Adam McQuaid] every day, that's helped out. I'm  feeling good in all the areas. Still, the game's going to be a different thing. I'm not going to have miracles in the first game, which I hope maybe I do. It's going to be a little bit of time, but hopefully I can contribute every night."

 

Asked about Saturday night's game, Savard said, "That would be a lot of fun. Hopefully I can get in by then."

West undergoes surgery on wrist

Delonte West underwent surgery to repair a displaced right wrist fracture Tuesday morning at New England Baptist Hospital, the team announced. The surgery was performed by Dr. Drew Terrono and Dr. Hervey Kimball and assisted by Celtics Team Physician Dr. Brian McKeon and was deemed successful by the team.

 

There is no immediate update on when West may be able to return to the Celtics who are now missing both he and Kendrick Perkins (knee surgery) for a significant period of time. Center Jermaine O’Neal is also out at least through this week although there is no update on when he will be back either. The Celtics have said they won’t make a move to replace West and will rely on Von Wafer and rookie guard Avery Bradley to fill in the gap.

Brady among those missing at practice

FOXBORO — The following players were missing from the start of Patriots practice Tuesday afternoon: quarterback Tom Brady, cornerback Jonathan  Wilhite, offensive lineman Stephen Neal, defensive lineman Myron Pryor, defensive lineman Ron Brace and defensive lineman Mike Wright.

While most of the other players have been dogged by various injuries over the previous week or so — including Brady, who has had a foot problem as of late — Brace's absence is his first in some time. No Brace, as well as Pryor and Wright, leaves the New England defensive line a little thin at practice Tuesday afternoon.

The practice session, which is being held in full pads, is on the upper practice fields behind Gillette Stadium. New England is preparing for a Monday night showdown with the Jets.

Felipe Lopez declines Sox arbitration offer

Free agent infielder Felipe Lopez declined the Red Sox' offer of salary arbitration, meaning that the team will receive a compensatory draft pick in the sandwich round should he sign with another club. Lopez signed with the Sox for the last nine days of the season after he was released by the Cardinals in September. The Padres claimed him on release waivers, but Lopez declined, instead electing to sign with the Sox (who not only paid him the remainder of what he was owed for the 2010 season, but also added a team option, which they subsequently declined).

 

Lopez played in four games for the Sox, going 4-for-15. He was one of three free agents -- along with catcher Victor Martinez and third baseman Adrian Beltre -- who was offered salary arbitration by the Sox. Martinez already signed with the Tigers and Beltre is almost certain to decline as well. Both Martinez and Beltre, as Type A free agents, would entitle the Sox to two compensatory...

Belichick responds to Ryan's comments

FOXBORO -- Reacting to the quote from Jets coach Rex Ryan saying he came to New York to “kick his ass,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick acknowledged there is no love lost between the two teams.

“Sure, that’s understandable,” he said Tuesday. “Hey, there is no love lost out there between those two teams. We both want to win. That’s what we’re here for — the Jets and the Patriots, both teams are walking out on the field to come out victorious. Is that a big news story? Is that something we didn’t know? The Jets want to win the game? The Patriots want to win?”

Ryan told Newsday’s Bob Glauber on Monday, “As much as I respect and admire Bill Belichick, I...
