I'm a peak guy. How good a player was when he was able to perform at his peak.
Still, I don't know how Orr gets such high marks from everyone (including people who value career). Then again, I never put Lindros or Forsberg in my top 40 all-time either.
Not an exact science, is it?
It's not an exact science and there is a godlike aura around Orr sometimes when one even questions if other guys are in the discussion for number 1 and I think Lidstrom is but this might become more clear after he retires and we have some perspective to judge him on.
I'm a career guy but of course peak and prime are important too.
