Arena Denis Savard
Here is a picture of the Denis Savard Arena wich was built next to the Auditorium and wich I took today. I am told that it was built app. 15 years ago. Denis Savard was born in Pointe Gatineau Qc, never played for the Montreal Canadiens nor for any Verdun team as far as I know so I don't know why they named the arena after him. I think the only position he had was as assistant coach with the Montreal Canadiens for a year or 2. There are so many other Verdun hockey players or coaches that they could have used.
