Fair enough. I would agree that Orr was the best player in the world at the time, but let's say that Hull had begun to fall back a bit from number two.

Personally, I would put Phil Esposito ahead of Hull in the fall of 1972. After all, he'd won the last three scoring titles up to that point and was about to win the next two.
