First i should say that perhaps you are right, it's hard to compare forwards and defenders. As i said right now i would vote Orr over all three in a best ever scenery. But we're talking about the undisputed top four here for christs sake, it's close in terms of peaks. Lemieux finishes at number four career wise but i feel he would have done REAL well in the 1991 Canada Cup and 1996 World Cup if he was healthy, i base this on his actual performance during the 1991 and 1992 playoffs and seasons where he was somewhat healthy during those years. I mean, Lemieux was a total beast when somewhat healthy but unfortunately that often did not happen. I will however keep Orr in mind in the future too, that i can promise you.
