Not necessarily saying it shouldnt have been (well, actually I am), but does he really belong with the Rocket, Lafleur?.....Beliveau...Doug Harvey? My god, no! He was a ponderous defenceman who had a frightful bit of injuries after a great start that may have robbed him of much more than 1 second all star team selection. But so what? He was a member of the Big Three? Yes, the worst one. And the others havent had their numbers retired and it appears Lapointe will be overlooked. In his prime, he was consistently behind Lapointe in the Norris votes and all star team votes. And if you watched, there was a good reason Lapointe was considered just behind Orr and Park and then Larry was up there with Potvin and Salming. Savard - great but not a superstar. He was also booed heavily near the end of his habs stint. As Bring Back Doniar-Bucky likes to point out there was a nasty bit with the cops recently too. I smell politics. 1 English 1 French like last year? Maybe old friend Gainey pulling strings? In any case..... a travesty that a sublime human like Dryden had to share the spotlight.
