[QUOTE=revolverjgw]Yeah, Wayne can attribute his 137 rookie points to the wizardry of Brett Calighen and Blair McDonald.
Also, I believe the NHL has caught up to Orr's physical gifts more than they have to Wayne's mental gifts. Orr would NEVER be able to rush up the ice with such aplomb these days, and those point shots would go in with MUCH less frequency. He'd still be the best D-man in the game, but forget about him being as far ahead of the pack as he was in the '70s.
YOU obviously never saw him play.....SHAME, you wouldn't be posting such drivel if you had.
