My opinion is that the players I listed (Nedomansky, Petrov, Savard, Fredrickson, MacKay, Keats, Larionov) should make our list.

Leaning towards Sundin, Sittler, and Zetterberg also making it based on comments above, but it's still early this round, and obviously all 10 players can't be voted in now.

I guess Sittler might be closer than we thought. Anyway, this is kind of a lame hockey-reference comparison, but I think it tends to show a small but clear advantage for Savard:

Sittler points finishes: 3rd, 8th, 8th, 9th, 9th
Savard points finishes: 3rd, 3rd, 6th, 7th, 7th

Sittler PPG finishes: 3rd, 4th, 8th, 9th, 9th, 10th
Sittler PPG finishes: 3rd, 3rd, 7th, 7th, 7th, 8th, 8th, 8th

Sittler All Star Games: 1975, 1978, 1980, 1983
Savard All Star Games: 1982, 1983, 1984, 1986, 1988, 1991, 1996

And as shown above, Savard has a small advantage in VsX-7 year score.

Basically, it's a lot of little things in Savard's favor, though perhaps you indirectly made the case that Sittler could be considered a viable add NEXT round.
