Why would you make that assumption after the seeing the above analysis?
Probably because the analysis is far from complete - overlooks Phil Esposito's scoring in Chicago as the third forward option, 1972 Summit Series - supported by Park, Lapointe and Savard,1976 Canada Cup with Orr and a cast of HHOFers, 1977 WHC with eliminated NHL support. New York with negligible support from defensemen.
Regardless of the circumstances, with/without Orr, Phil Esposito managed a quality offensive performance.
