    Polar opposites on the "class" spectrum.

    Don't let Mr Orr hear you say that. He is a big fan of PK, on and off the ice.

    Subban seems like a fine kid off the ice. On the ice he is a shitbag.

    Let's face it, Bobby Orr wouldn't say anything bad about anybody anyways so we might never really know how he feels about PK's antics.

    Oh I don't know about that. I could see Orr saying something like "He probably has the best form in the league when he falls <sly grin>. He is after all honest. :becky:

    He's also another word that ends with "t" that tends to keep people from badmouthing players though. "Agent".

    Greatest player to play the game hands down!(not greatest defenseman though, that was Doug Harvey)

    he just did it better and more forcefully than anyone who came before him. What he did accomplish was make everyone learn & remember what that term meant...... permanently as opposed to the guys who had the idea, but not the talent or the wherewithal to make us remember them.

    er..uh..guess you never heard of Doug Harvey

    Happy Birthday, along with the answer to a nice little trivia question (What number did Bobby Orr wear in juniors?)

    Bobby Orr and the big, bad Bruins are responsible for me becoming obsessed with hockey when I was a kid. He is definitely on hockey's Mt. Rushmore and deservedly so.

    What a great player!

    Oh. :thumb:


    And while I am on a roll, I did not think the "Championship T-shirt" thing started way back then. This may be the first.
