If Russell Bowie is a Denis Savard-caliber player (and I'm not sure he belongs that "low" but that's the comparison most recently made by Sturm) and Savard was a guy who scored at a 110 point pace in his 9-year prime in the 80s, then relatively speaking you have to think Blair Russell is a guy who would have scored at about a 55 point pace in the 80s while playing on a line with a 110 point guy. Maybe comparisons can't be so easily and simply made due to the different natures of the game (one line versus a whole team) but if Bowie = Savard, then Russell is more like Troy Murray offensively.
