I was doing some research going through back issues of The Sporting News and happened to come across one of Fischler's columns from the Apr.24/76 issue. This concerned whether the Bruins would be able to re-sign Orr to a new contract. Here's what Stan said:

"Soundings in and around the Charles River indicate that proper Bostonians couldn't care less whether or not Orr wears the Big B jersey again. Who needs Bobby Big Bucks when you can win with Hodge, Cashman, Doak, Bucyk, Zanussi, etc."



Bashing players who made a lot of money was a staple of Fischler's columns. It's called jealousy.
