The sentence that said "no more than any other 4th liner" was a little much, but when Orr played for Renney in New York he was regularly on the ice in the last couple minutes of a game to protect a one goal lead. He was no liability. He was also a better skater than people think, at least better than those that didn't watch him play but made up their minds based on stereotypes. He could get in on the forecheck and crush defenders. Combine those facts with his toughness and he was an asset, not a liability.
