False. I said they needed to get something for him. They got NOTHING for him. They were never going to re-up Orr. Ever.
They knew that by 1975. They let him play two more seasons. Jacobs didn't want to take the hit.
Face it, you are a Jacobs apologist. You're showing it now. Above, you just said Kessel and Seguin were good picks, too. Why on earth would you have top 5 picks and not like your picks? Neither are on the team, you moron!
Okay, step by step.
1. You said they traded him and they didn't get enough in return. There is no denying it. You were blown up by everyone for it.
2. In 1974-75, he lead the league in scoring.
3. It's a proven fact that the B's offer to Orr included part ownership of the team. It's a proven fact that his agent never delivered the offer. This is not up for debate or dispute.
4. Kessel and Seguin were good picks. Both were integral parts to the team winning the Cup in 2011. Kessel was traded because he wanted too much money. The B's got the Seguin pick and the Hamilton pick in return. Nice trade, also. Seguin was traded because he wasn't doing a very good job of being an adult and a pro. That doesn't take away from the fact that he's an incredible hockey player. The GM just couldn't deal with his partyboy ways any longer.
So, once again, you've been dismantled. You really should let this go. Each time you click "Add your post", you look even more stupid...if that's even possible.
Isn't it amazing how he knew what the B's thought in 74-5 when he wasn't even born yet?
Never even saw Orr play!
Obviously born a troll.
Oh, did you hear he claimed to play division 1 hockey for UNC. BWAHAHAHAHA!
I played through high school. Div 1. Almost won the state title as senior . PLayed with kids drafted. Know aN NHL player now who was 2 years behind me.
I don't need to defend myself. You trolls are all the same. Claiming you aren't trolls, then align and troll.
Who cares if I wasn't born when Orr was playing? My parents had season tickets after they got married right as Orr arrived. I've heard all the stories. Greatest player ever. But, to let him go knowing you were't going to resign him was a mistake. It set them back years. They coudn't compete with MOntreal or then the Islanders in the early 1980s. Even when they got close, it showed up. Not enough.
You aren't a hockey guy. I can tell. You're not even a football guy. Anyone who only loves the QB, doesn't know football.
When JAcobs bought the team, one of the first things he did besides raise ticket prices was shrink the beer cup sizes, raise the price, etc. Instead of couting kegs, he counted cups. I know this because my dad's cousin was a beer vendor. He told them to keep the cups and just come back to stick it to old jeremy.
Any legit Bruins fan defending Jeremy Jacobs is a moron.
Jagr was cheaper than Iginla, hence why we ended up with Iginla. They could have sold him an a new deal in the works for him if they wanted. They did none of this
We lost the Cup because Jagr sucks, is 42 years old, slow not physcial, won't play D, is a turnover machine and I predicted it all.
That's why NAS follows me here. I called it, he didn't like it as a homer Jacobs lover, an owner and team that can do no wrong, and he hates to admit I was right.
Now, we sign Iginla? Could we have mucked that up anymore? Only with Jacobs.
Laced up my first pair of skates when I was 4. Many, many years before you were apparently illegitimately born.
Sincerely doubt a pansy like you EVER played a team sport as you have no concept of the meaning of T.E.A.M. NONE!
