not as flashy as orr, but i think he was better than ray borque. any thoughts?
You won't find many who put Potvin ahead of Ray Bourque. At their peaks, Bourque was nominated for (and robbed of one) Hart trophies, and he stayed at an elite level for longer than any defenseman in history. Not to take away from Potvin, he just doesn't surpass Bourque, who currently leads all defensemen in career goals, assists, and points.
