Savard Loyal to Wirtz

from the Chicago Tribune,
"I have a really close relationship with Mr. Wirtz," Savard says. The Wirtzes "always took care of my family and myself. But I've earned what I'm doing. I sacrifice a lot." It's possible Savard will end up taking the route of former Detroit coach Dave Lewis, who spent many years as Scotty Bowman's assistant before finally getting the top job. But Savard's loyalty and relationship with the Wirtzes may hurt him in another way. It's possible he may never get the head-coaching job because the Wirtzes never would want to be in a position to fire him.
