That one season was enough to convince me he was the best I ever had seen play .
In his entire hockey career he never had a minus season , in fact I think his plus 124 for one season is still a record for D-men .
He was the youngest player at 31 to ever be inducted into the HHOF .
Just too hard to convince an old time fan like me he doesn't belong at number one just because he played for only one season in the original six ..

Orr was the best of any era, he was just head and shoulders and chest above the rest like Coffey, Harvey, Potvin, etc and those are no slouches. Sadly I didn't get to see him play live, just in the highlights but man he was something.
