To what extent would a healthy Bobby Orr have affected the '72 Summit Series?

The '72 Summit Series was virtually a dead heat between the Canadians and the Soviets: Although the Canadians snuck out a 4-3-1 decision, goals were 32-31 in favour of the Soviets. However, the series was played with the undisputed best player of the era, Bobby Orr, out with injuries. If Bobby Orr had been healthy and able to play, would the series have been a rout for the Canadians, or would is presence have only a small influence on the outcome of the series?
