I remember it well, too. Came on the heels of Bobby Hull leaving...

Orr brings to the Black Hawks an offensive dimension that they have lacked since 1972, when the Chicago management refused to sign Bobby Hull for about half the $3 million it cost to obtain Orr.
Sad that Wirtz saw the light too late.

...Still, Reay was hardly despondent.

"I'm convinced now that the personality of a team needs a player with charisma," he said, "and Orr's presence definitely has changed this team's personality.
I believe that this "charisma" is very important in professional sports for a team to succeed. IMO, our guys who fit this bill are Sharp and to a lesser extent Kane. Can't win without the guys who keep the team loose while still performing at a high level.
