Sorry, I didn't get here earlier. I have this book that I had long since put away (sadly, my hockey library is too big and the books from 60s to 80s are being put away!). Anyways, here are their stats in the tournament, and just in the finals:

Tournament Totals

7 GP each

Orr

G: 2

A: 7

PTS: 9*

PIM: 8

SOG: 26

+/-: +8


Potvin

G: 1

A: 8*

PTS: 9*

PIM: 16*

SOG: 16

+/-: +10*

Finals


2 GP each

Orr

G: 2*

A: 1

P: 3

PIM: 4*

SOG: 10*

+/-: +1


Potvin

G: 1

A: 3*

PTS: 4*

PIM: 4*

SOG: 5

+/-: +5*

* lead tournament or finals

It should be noted that Sittler and Perreault also scored 2 goals in the finals. Also Victor Zhluktov had 5 goals and 9 points in only 5 games for USSR. Hull, led the tournament with 5 goals in 7 games, but CZH Milan Novy also 5 goals in 7 games. Novy also led the tournament in SOG with 28.

So I guess Potvin thinks because some of his stats are better than Orr's, he should have gotten the MVP.
