The Bobby Hull statement sums it up best after the first period he ever played against Orr. He went up to the ref and told him that we will need two pucks for the rest of the game because Orr has one all to himself the whole game.

I feel sorry for any hockey fan who never saw him play. You couldn't hate him. Hell, you, couldn't even dislike him.
I never saw Orr play but I think I've seen enough footage and game clips to realize he was just as dominant as Gretzky, if not a tad more. Poor Brad Park. Easily lost two or three Norris trophies because of Orr.
