Orr got in his first scrap since going down to the AHL the other day and it was a pretty good one. He found himself a more than willing combatant in Bordeleau and i would give the edge to Bordeleau here but both guys were throwing bombs
its nice to watch, but its ruined him physically.[/QUOTE][/B]
Very true. Sad to see a warrior like Orr back in AHL, reminds me of anthony quinn at end of requiem for a heavyweight.
Fought fight after fight last couple of years trying to breathe some life into deada$$ leaf team, especially 2 years ago. He gave his health for that team,,,and they sent him to rot in minors.
Won a hell of a lot more than he lost but when he lost, he lost badly, big mac, englend for Pitts, the one time carkner beat him. Took some terrible shots.
All of Burkes talk when sending him down was BS and burke knew it. People didn't pass on Orr cause fighting doesn't matter, they passed on him cause he makes decent money for fighter and is close to done if not done already, next big punch he takes probably ends his career.
Should have put Orr on LTIR for rest of contract....PCS.
Of course he can still win fights, he hits like a truck but next time someone hits him square, it might not be pretty.
Never forget and never let the bs burke spouted fool you, hockey is a business and a tought one at that. And this is from someone who loves to watch hockey fights.
