Some players seem to flourish under specific coaches and Pavelich overwhelmingly played his best under Herb Brooks.

Pavelich was an easy guy to cheer for, small guy, good determination, and at least under Brooks, results that seemed to outweigh ability.

The standard story is once Ted Sator took over in Manhattan, Brook's flow and weave "smurf" style went out the door and dump n chase took over.

Most things that I've read about Pavelich over the years suggest that he very much had his own mind and was considered eccentric.
