To explain further, I think that Crosby is a slightly better player, but Malkin already has a bit more accomplishments in his career. All this is arguable and I don't wish to discuss fairness of my opinion regarding Crosby and Malkin.
I understand your thinking.

In fact, I would say that's the way the majority look at these comparisons.

I guess I just see Orr as that much better than all the rest.
