Negan has "saved" more people then Rick ever will. Similarly, Rick has "killed" more people than Negan ever will. Rick is really, really good at killing. Far better at it than Negan is. Rick is also pretty good at leaving defenseless people to die (most recently, Siddiq and Jadis). It's starting to look like the Saviors are the real protagonists of this series. Wow, look at that spike on the S7 opener. I guess killing off a main character and not saying who is a great way to get a 1-episode bump. Little staying power though.
