I'm talking about the people who advised him on the drafting of his later years, on teh trade of Leclair & Desjardin, the CHelios trade and the trade he was about to make for Roy that would have been as putrid as Houle's trade.

He was advised by his hockey people that Leclair had peeked offensively. I can remember the press conference were he stated as much. By that time Savard had become an absentee GM and was relying on his advisers. Something Bobsled was doing also as GM in Montreal
What very few understand is that Leclair was misplaced at center but flourished at left wing, where he had less responsibility (Lindros took over) and could concentrate on scoring. This promptly showed up in his stats. I don't think that even Bobby Clarke realized this at the time of the trade.
