With regards to his Rangers years, Espo did have Brad Park. The "he wouldn't hit 50" is in the alternate universe where Orr simply ceased to exist and was replaced by someone who, I assume for the sake for the sake of this argument, had little to no offensive presence. Realistically, even if that's the type of player filling that roster spot, there would have been more offense from the other defensemen because that individual defenseman wouldn't have played Orr's minutes at ES or PP, which means someone else would have.
Nope. Park went to Boston in the Espo trade.
