Bobby Orr and the Big, Bad Bruins by Stan Fischler

Not since Eddie Shore has a Boston player so ignited hockey fans as Robert Gordon "Bobby" Orr of Parry Sound, Ontario. For the boisterous young Bruins have now hit their stride, and heading the attack from his shallow defense position is this strong-skating, hard-shooting blond Wunderkind of professional sport.

Rookie of the year at nineteen, voted best defenseman in the league his sophomore season, and signed to a $400,000 contract before he was twenty-one, Bobby Orr is an odds-on favorite to lead Boston to the very top of the National Hockey League.

Here, with a slice of the Boston Bruins rich hockey history and profiles of such outstanding teammates of Orr's is Phil Esposito, Derek Sanderson, and Ted Green, author Stan Fischler tells the exciting story of a player who is fast becoming a legend, and of a team which will soon hold The Stanley Cup.

STAN FISCHLER is one of hockey's best-known writers. Author of books on Gordie Howe, Rod Gilbert, and Stan Mikita, he has the only syndicated hockey column on the continent.


"When this team is right — everybody healthy—it can't be beaten. There's nobody on this team who's afraid of anyone. A lot of die people in this league have a tendency not to want to pay the price. They see a game get a little rough and say to themselves, 'Oh, oh. Forget this one. We'll get two points next game." IPs not a question of courage, really, just a tendency to look for flie easier way. That doesn't happen on this club, believe me. None of our gays are afraid of anyone." -Derek Sanderson
