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

To me, this was purely being caught up in the elation of winning and the ego of an athlete speaking. It's not uncommon for young athletes to think they are the best thing since sliced bread. So his rant after the 76 CC appears to be another 'look at me' plea.
I'll throw another name in the mix as I have heard that Hull was a deserving candidate for MVP as well.
It was after the Islanders won their fourth straight cup. What's so bad about that statement?? He may have been right.
