I saw Savard play from about 77 to when he retired. In the last couple of years of his career, he was done. however, in the 1979 series against Boston, particularly game 7, he was the most valuable Canadiens defenseman. I saw Langway early in his career, but after he was traded to Washington, hardly saw him play. Savard had more ability to score than Langway and appeared to be more mobile laterally, which made him so good defensively. And that was after recovering from two broken legs early in his career. He is the author of the original Savardian Spinorama. I can't say much about Langway other than I was mad when the Habs traded him.
