Judging by those teams, it might've had something with Savard wanting to play hard.
Savard was a young kid who thought he was hot ****. I rarely talk out of school about someone I met in hockey but he might have been the cockiest. He was hanging out with Wade Belak at the time and treated people below him, not worth his time. Call it youth, or bad timing, that was my experience with him after hearing negative things before and since that encounter.

Always liked him as a player, natural scorer, great instincts.
