    Fogarty may have been a good NHL D-Man maybe a great one. But he was not even close to ever being Bobby Orr. Think the next Al Iafrate not the next Bobby Orr.

    Nearly 30 years since he retired....and no one has come anywhere near to being the next Bobby Orr.

    Not even under consideration. Telling.

    I don't know about the Next Bobby Orr, but he could have been something amazing from what I've heard.

    ESPN used to have a page that had a long long list of quotes from teammates, friends and family. (found it http://espn.go.com/magazine/vol5no20fogarty.html )His story is sad. Think Theo Fleury, but worse.

    The most telling quote was this:

     
  6. Still a sad story.
