thats right. All you have to do is is look at the number, add the %, Bobs yer Uncle. In Orr's case, 44% of the time. His greatest attribute was obviously in his ability to "read" both ends of the ice, like his mind was 30' above the play, but most importantly, his skating abilities. Deceptively fast for the era combined with excellent hands. Almost impossible today to imagine a player being allowed to rag the puck the way he did almost game in game out without getting benched, sent down, probably cut. We used to see a lot more one man end-to-enders'. I miss them.
