We can't assume the voters who voted for Orr would, instead, vote for Park. That might seem more far-fetched when talking about the 1972 or 1974 Norris trophies but in 1971 only 22 votes separated Park from #3 and in 1970, 36 votes separated Park from #3.
You can't assume anything and be positive but there is no logic that without Orr, people who voted Park second would instead vote Park third.
