This is the book that hockey fans have been waiting for: the definitive, unauthorized account of the man who many say was the greatest player the game has ever seen. The legend of Bobby Orr is one of the most enduring in all of sports. Even those who have never played the game of hockey know the mystique and tradition surrounding Boston''s immortal defenseman. In the glory years of the Original Six, he and Gordy Howe were the Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio of their sport with equally as rabid a following. Bobby Orr redefined the defensive style of hockey. He was the first to infuse offensive juice to the defenseman position, driving up the ice, setting up players, and scoring some goals of his own. There was nothing like it before Orr. He was the first player to win three straight MVP awards and the first defenseman to score 20 or more goals in a season. His most famous goal won the Boston Bruins the Stanley Cup in 1970--"for the first time in 29 years--"against the St. Louis Blues in overtime. History will also remember Bobby Orr as a key figure in the Alan Eagleson scandal and as the unfortunate player forced into early retirement in 1978 because of his injuries. His is a story of dramatic highs and lows. In
