93 points in 56 games as a 16 year old. Another 6 points in 6 PO games.
94 points in 47 games as a 17 year old. Another 28 points in 17 PO games as well as scoring a whopping 36 points in just 12 games in that version of the M-Cup that year.

So while I agree Potvin was incredible, Orr was just ridiculous!

Orr may have had better numbers offensively but Potvin terrified people. The open ice hits I saw him level as a junior were incredible. I saw him play dozens of times and have never seen another junior player as physically domiment. I never actually got to see Orr play at the junior level so that may would prevent me from making as informed a judgement as I would like.
