The Broons agreed to put siding on Orr's house. Who's looking for sympathy- I'm jealous; Its a well known fact the Canadiens had territorial rights back then and 'some' of the players or players they acquired from 'those' players either directly or via draft picks were those territorial players. I think its Ken Dryden's book that actually discusses this whole Canadien advantage- and he's your former standout goalie. If I'm wrong then so is Dryden although you can always say he's a Leaf backer now-but the book was written years ago.
