I would add Rocket Richard and call it a deal. I feel blessed to have had a father who was a season-ticket owner of the Bruins from 1955-1975. Folks, Robert Gordon Orr was the Michael Jordan of hockey. Imagine having the top defenseman in the NHL LEAD THE LEAGUE IN SCORING as well. I have talked to scores of old hockey pros - from Dave Maloney to Gordie Howe - and all of them TO A MAN - think that Bobby Orr was "The Man." The reverence for him among his fellow players is almost poignant.
Each of the great player seems to be great for a particular trait. The Rocket could take a bullet and come back and score 2 in the 3rd and the winner in ot. Howe, it was the mix of talent and toughness. Orr, at least to me, seemed to do something new every time you'd see him, something nobody else would do.

I knew that he tore us up, but it is no shame to have him do that he is awesome.
