Why all the crapping on Serge Savard? He's one of most brilliant hockey minds and businessmen in the country. Savard's made a fortune in real estate and horse racing. I heard an interview he did a few years ago. He said he paid $4,000 for a colt. It won little brown jug, he was making $400,000 a month off the horse, for year and a half. Then he sold half its stud rights for 2 million. He was involved with lotto Quebec at one point. He has a resort in Cuba, Marriot Chateau Champlain in Montreal he owns. PEI Rocket is his. Among other investments.

Very generous in philanthropy. Does tons of volunteer work, was involved with arthritis society in Quebec. He transformed his career at 22 to become one of best defensive defensemen to play the game. Guided Habs to 2 cups, only GM ever to win first round of playoffs 10 straight years.
