years Robert Gordon (Bobby) Orr set practically every record in hockey that you
can imagine for a defenseman.
He altered the game of hockey forever.
One of the many
astonishing feats of Bobby's career was his +/- ratio. Bobby ended his
career with a +/- ratio of 597. His best season was 1970-71 when he concluded
with an NHL record of 124.
Just so you know Wayne Gretzky's best +/- season was 98. In his career Bobby
never had a negative +/- season.
So it is not
surprising that Bobby won two Stanley Cups, one in 1970 and the other in
1972. And was named MVP for Team Canada in 1976 in the Canada Cup.
Bobby Orr today,
spends the majority of his time helping charities throughout Canada and the USA.
No wonder he was and
still is such an inspiration to all on and off the ice surface.
