I take Orr ten times out of ten. I have yet to hear a convincing argument for Lemieux over Orr. Orr not only was the best defenseman ever (8 Norris in 7 full season; yes his first Norris was in a half season), but he also put up some mighty fine points.

The thing that seals the deal is two Art Rosses. Orr could best a prime Esposito, Lafleur, Dionne, Clarke and Mikita in points. I just have never been able to wrap my head around someone being that good.
