Can you make a case for Potvin over Orr in the 1976 Canada Cup?

The diary that he wrote about that tournament can be found here:
(go to page 60 where the article starts)
I remember him taking a lot of criticism from fans and media over it, but then years later when I finally got a chance to read it, it wasn't nearly that bad. Overall, he's very complimentary and respectful in regards to Orr. He just doesn't doesn't have any false modesty about himself. I thought the worst part of the diary was his complaining about Ottawa fans not appreciating him enough.
And no, he doesn't have a case. Orr was the better and more effective player in the tournament. Rogie Vachon on the other hand, might have a case.
