RTL, if there was a smarter D man than Serge Savard, I haven't seen him. I've heard Doug Harvey was the best at controlling the game, but I didn't have the pleasure. Savard didn't skate the puck like Niedermayer, he didn't have to. A pass moves at a higher speed. As a pairing over 10 years, give me #'s 19 and 18 any day of the week. if not for the leg injuries, Savard would have been just a notch below Orr. I believe he was that good. PLus, these 2 haven't played a shift together yet, in fact they may not play together.
