Why is it that despite the incredible career that Denis Savard had that he was never named to Team Canada? I know that there could be a variety of reasons but why is it that he wasnt picked back then? For the 1984 and '87 Canada Cup he had points in the 90s both times. And all of those years he was surronded by 100 point seasons. Yeah its true that there were a lot of good players Canada had on those teams and a lot that werent even named but I'd have to think that Savard could have easily competed with the Russians of either years. He had the speed and could stickhandle as good as anyone. Maybe they thought he was too soft I dont know. I'm not so sure where he'd fit in on the '87 team but in '84 I think he for sure could have made that team. By '91 and '96 he was past his prime and in '81 he was only a rookie but why was Savard overlooked all the time?
