I remember a Blueshirt Bulletin article in 1996 when his coach said that he can "score at will in the OHL."

He had 149 points in O, which is a league that actually plays defense (unlike QMJHL).

Savard was a high-risk, high-return prospect. Dube was actually more hyped up and was drafted two rounds earlier the same year. But trading Savard for Lundmark was insane. Lundmark was never gonna be more than a second liner anyway. Savard was already a second liner and became a star by his mid-20s.
