Bobby Orr vs. Wayne Gretzky

Younger fans will tell you that Gretzky was the all-time best. I've watch almost 50 years of hockey and I've never seen anyone as good as Orr. His end to end rushes were electrifying. He had the most accurate shot I've ever seen. He was the puckhandler I've seen. And I don't think I've seen a faster skater. When he was on the ice, the puck was always on his stick. No defenseman ever won the scoring title until Orr and it will likely never happen again.
