.... ya, that $1000 the Bruins threw at the Parry Sound Minor Hockey Association back in the day with inflation would be about $7500 today so I rather suspected that rather than just Orrs' team it was indeed organizational. The intent as you & C58 have further discussed being to get a leg up on the Leafs & everyone/anyone else taking a run at that particular player.

... ya, kinda figured as much. Funny, but I just bought that book yesterday. Havent read his first hand account of Bostons dealings with Parry Sounds' Minor Hockey Association. Merely looked at the pictures thus far.... licked the back page as is my wont... tasted like grape Kool-Aid.
