Larry was one of those few players that raised you out of your seat when the time required it.
Robinson was also prone to the odd braincramp whereas Savard was like Fort Knox when he had the puck.
It is true that Robinson played a more exciting style but I always felt the safest when Savard had the puck.
Savard had elite skills and would have put up many more points if Robinson and Lapointe weren't there.
Kinda of hard to compare the two but their value to that particular team is alot closer than the casual fan tends to realize.
