There has never been and probably never will be as deadly of a forward d-man combination as Orr and Espo.

If you never got the chance to see them play - go to hockeydb and check out what they did to the rest of the league in the early 70's. 70-71 in particular.
And then add in one of the best goalies of his generation.
Those two dismantled the league like no one but Gretzky.

Espo's 76 goals - next closest non Bruin was 44 (dismantled the previous record
Orr's 102 assists - next closest non Bruin was 52!
Espo 152 pts. Orr 139 pts. - next closest non Bruin was 96 pts.
Orr's +124!
