He had eventual career ending back surgery in December 1978. His back was shot. Technically I believe Savard had the captaincy for the 1979 Cup as well as the 1977 one where Cournoyer sat out as well. No doubt without the injuries he was still effective when healthy. In 1976 he had 9 postseason points and in 1978 he scored 7 goals including a 53 point regular season campaign. So he still was a big part of it when healthy
