Voted Orr, but it is close. My personal preference might have something to do with it since I am starting to get sick about Lemieux defender's who put him above Gretzky.

Both had arguably the same level peak as Gretzky and neither had longevity. Orr was just that much more impressive since he did not have his "Gretzky" before him. Without Gretzky I probably would vote for Lemieux.
Lemieux was not very close to Gretzky's peak - Orr and Gretzky had a similar peak.

1. Gretzky
2. Howe
3. Orr
4. Lemieux
