I didn't say Green was better than Orr in 1968, I said he outscored him.

As far as falling behind those guys defensively, I agree. However, how does he rank with them as an overall defenseman?

But the original comment was that he became a high end defensive defenceman latter in his career, which I would stand beside.
The original comment said nothing about defensive play - it said he was "a better defenseman" before the injury.
