I picked Orr as the best Bobby or Robert ever. Either agree, disagree, or pick your own example of a first name and give your opinion who the best player ever with that first name is. The Best Player Ever with this First Name is...

Bobby Orr, D
Gordie Howe, RW
Wayne Gretzky, C
Mario Lemieux, C
Doug Harvey, D
Jean Beliveau, C
Nicklas Lidstrom, D
Stan Mikita, C
Raymond Bourque, D
Denis Potvin, D
Eddie Shore, D
Maurice Richard, RW

My pick for the greatest "Joseph" is...

Rocket Richard.

The "Pocket Rocket" is also high on the list.

Hmmm...

I'm interested to see which name can produce the best team, both as a starting line and as an overall top-to-bottom team.

I'm sure you could find some better 'Bobs' but:
Luongo
Orr-Švehla
Reichel-Lang-Hull
