The big question however should be the quality of the league Orr played in. Since the expansion doubled the amount of teams, and Orr (on the few videos I've seen) seemed to round the other players like they were cones, it's seems like a legit assumption that the quality of the league wasn't the greatest. The less talented players in the NHL before the expansion were obviously better than the less talented players after. Orr was however unquestionably the player of his generation and probably the best defender of all time.

and btw as it really that more physical before as the guy earlier in this thread claimed. Without the xxl pads and helmets, a guy like Orr that draw alot attention be slaughtered out there?
