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

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:
7 GP each
2 GP each
* 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.
