That's fine, while I find it pretty closed minded (I would never say 'you can't convince me' of something so debateable). The fact is, Orr is considered the greatest defensemen to ever play the game by the VAST majority of the hockey world, for a reason.
On the Couture defensively argument. I already proved he saw significantly inferior competition, so with that in mind:
Def Start %
It's pretty close actually, Patty didn't have one of his better defensive seasons. He did face quite a bit harder competition than Couture though, and thus was clearly more trusted by the coaches. It's tough to judge since Couture does not get to spend a lot of time on the ice against elite players.
