This site drives me nuts.
I didn't "regulate" Oates below anybody. I said Savard's slickness let him overcome size and succeed in an era that's friendly to guys who had a gear he didn't.

What you're saying is "slicker than Savard" is an accurate description of Oates. And you're questioning whether I've seen these players?

Incidentally, if anyone actually said Oates was the best playmaker of his time (I'm inclined to think you just made that up), that person was either lying, one of his relatives or a colossal fool.
