Inspired by the Lidstrom thread both in HoH and on the main board, can anyone name the defenseman or defensemen who were responsible for the myth in the title of my thread? It seems like a lot of people think just because Bobby Orr was so good offensively, that he was lacking on the defensive side. Or that his rushing would hurt teams in today's NHL. I say if no one scored while Orr was on the ice, who gives a damn? So who was/were the first defensemen to be good at offense, and mediocre defensively? I missed his prime and only caught the tail end of his career, but would Phil Housley be an accurate guess?
