Jim Rutherford Picks His All-Star Team Of Players He Faced

from Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

DEFENSE – “I always liked Larry Robinson a lot, but if you asked me to pick two, [Bobby Orr and Denis Potvin] would be the two. (Orr) changed the way you play defense. He came in and had so much mobility. He was such a great skater and could move the puck and jumped up into the play, which very, very few defensemen did prior to him.
