Jean Ratelle , is he in the top 100? It's very feasible that without Orr that Phil has a career like Jean or even worse.
If you look at Esposito's numbers in Boston during games when Orr did not play the data suggests that he still wins multiple Art Ross trophies, but not as many and not by as large of margins. And that doesn't take into account that in those games without Orr the D support Esposito was getting in Boston was lesser than many of the other top league scorers.
