Denis Savard: Blood, Sweat and Cheers

In the edition of the “Blood, Sweat and Cheers” series created by ChicagoBlackhawks.com, “The Great One” Wayne Gretzky talks about his many, many matchups against Denis Savard and the Blackhawks.

Denis Savard and I are seeing more of each other now than when we played, which is natural. In the National Hockey League, you see each other on game nights, and you never really socialize. You’re cordial if you talk at all, and there’s a respect factor. But you don’t really hang out until you’re done, which we both are now. I’ve had the same kind of relationship with Mario Lemieux since we retired.

Denis has been good enough to come to my fantasy camp the last few years. It’s every February in Las Vegas for five days, and it’s part of my charity foundation. A bunch of former players come out and we have a ball. We’ve even had Mike Keenan out there to coach. Just to make us feel at home, he throws a tantrum every once in a while.
