That is historically insignificant. PLENTY of players have done that and many undrafted have done better.

3 top-3's, 4 top 10's in assists are a "bit" stat? How many players do you expect to find with that kind of resume from here on out? I highly doubt we'll come across one with a playmaking resume that is better than Savard's, at least clearly.
So everything rides on that accomplishment. He should be remembered fifty years from now because he was a decent playmaker of his era, okay I get that reasoning, it makes him a AAA-level starter. But do you honestly think there are no undrafted players "with that kind of resume" of having four top-10 assist seasons?

I guess we draft guys from way back based largely on a similar stat, so it's fair enough. And in this 16-team draft, it's hard to imagine he wouldn't stand up as at least average on a scoring line as a passer.
