You are right about 1 thing. "He WAS among the three or four most valuable players...". Past tense. You would like to build your team around an over the hill 8.5 million dollar player, who will be life and death to get 20 goals this year? I know points aren't everything, but if you're paying over 8 mill. a year, 30 to 40 goals is an absolute must.

You may not be saying 'build a team around Savard', but that's what my list reflects. I chose the top 10 centers I'd want to build a team around for one season. In my opinion, that's the right method in deciding what the top 10 centers in the league are.

Savard's getting respect. If the question were: what are the top 10 centers so far this season? Then Savard would get more respect and be mentioned in more top ten lists. But that's not what the question was.
