Is Bobby Orr The Greatest Hockey Player Ever?
Please give a detailed answer.
I don't know. When I think of the Greatest Hockey Player Ever, that player that comes to mind is none other than Wayne Gretzky. Gretzky is nicknamed "The Great One" for a reason because of what he did on that ice for 20 years.
Do you think Gretzky was good at both ends of the ice? Orr led the league in scoring and won the Norris Trophy as the league's top defender. BTW, love the Patriots toque you are wearing!
I can only go off of the Hockey players I have seen play and I have seen Gretzky play when I was growing up.
Shoot Score Number four, Bobby Orr, it is hard to give any body a title like that, but yes Bobby Orr is one of the greatest. Boston was lucky to have them.
In my opinion Bobby Orr is the greatest player . He changed the game, especially offensively, and paved the way for players like Gretzky, Lemieux and Crosby.
Bobby Orr may have been the best of his era, although fans of Bobby Hull, and Gordie Howe may beg to differ. And there was Henri "the Rocket" Richard, the first player to get 50 goals in 50 games and first player to score 500 goals in his career. Of course, Gretzky managed to avoid major injuries, unlike Orr and Mario Lemieux.
If you define best as being able to play both ends of the ice, he might be the best. But Hull, Howe and Lemieux all held their own in the defensive end. (Hence, the Gordie Howe "hat trick"--a goal, an assist and a fight.) Maybe he was, but these others, not to mention some contemporary players might get into the mix.
