Cool.

Bobby Orr was the best player who ever laced up skates. And he's a heckuva human being, too, judging from the stories/interviews I've seen. His bottom feeder of an agent stole the money he made as a player...awful.

Did you know that before he left Boston, the Bruins owner offered him a piece of the club to stay? His agent never told him about the offer.

Don Cherry coached him and Cherry swears there were times when Orr gathered up the puck in his own end and levitated just off the ice as he blasted down to the other end. I remember watching him play on TV. He was playing in another dimension. When he picked up the puck at his own net and started to wind up, you could almost hear the other team collectively say: "Oh, Sh-t."

Bobby Orr is the only player in the history of the NHL who won ALL the individual trophies in one year. 1970. All four major trophies. Unbelievable.

If his knees had not given out on him, Gretsky would have only ½ of the records he holds, IMHO.


Did I mention that I believe Bobby Orr was the greatest hockey player who ever laced up skates?

He had no business fighting, as an elite player. What were the coaches thinking? Phil Esposito was bigger, and he fought once a year...

He was a complete player and he was unafraid. Sometimes, you just get a little carried away. Nobody pushed him around.

After getting hosed by his agent, Bobby Orr landed in Chicago, bum knees and all...

He refused to cash his game checks, felt that he "didn't earn them"...

The 'elite' players of today should take a page out of Bobby's book, he was a complete player, best that ever lived...

Amen, brother!

In fact, we could all stand a page out his book, I reckon. Me included.
