The writers obviously blamed Orr partially for the Bruins badly underperforming, right or wrong.

Did his defensive game slip just a tiny bit that season? I noticed that he tied for 1st for "best defensive defenseman" in 1970, but didn't show up for that category in any of the later 1970s polls that we have.
