Agreed. Also, this board loves dmen. I started attending NHL games in 66 and I love Orr. He's my all time favorite player. Period. That having been said if the Big 4 all came out in the same draft and the GMs magically (just go with it) knew what their regular season career totals would be, Orr would always be picked 4th. I'm not saying he's not the best ever, but the other Big 4 are not as far behind as some think.
