I'm not kidding when I say he was near Orr level before this happened.
Ask around, you'll hear a lot of guys who know better than me say the same thing.
Serge was the Man. Larry was a Titan of course. Serge was better. When Serge was skating it out, you cracked a brew and sat back, because the puck was coming out of our zone, every time. I mean every bloody time.
Let's not go overboard, or hell, why not, let's: There's a certain young guy on the Habs D right now who reminds me a lot of Serge. Including the Serge Spinerama. We'll see but I ain't seen nothing like it since Serge Savard the Man.
You want my favorite though, in my time: Lemaire. Absolutely wicked shot, wicked one timer, perfect perfect passes, and just a brilliant player. Never made mistakes, never. Just ask Flower.
Savard was/is soooo under-rated. Brilliant post!
