Bobby Orr Statue


I found this on eBay. Unfortunately the amazing Bobby Orr statue is not for sale. Not even the famous framed picture is for sale. Just the puck.

If anyone has any more information on the statue, I'm sure many of us would like to hear about it.

UPDATE - Regular reader Chazac has provided all the information needed on this statue down in the comments below. I thought I would move his insight up here to the main page:

The statue you showed for Bobby Orr is on the Club Level within the TD Garden which when you walk around the concourse contains the New England Sports Museum. I've included a URL here to view all of the information. There are several Armand Lamontagne statues including Larry Bird and Ted Williams (in fishing gear as Ted is also enshrined in the International Fishing Hall of Fame as well as the Baseball HOF). There's a lot of Boston Bruins history in the Museum including some amazing artifacts from the early days with Eddie Shore and Milt Schmidt (who is 96 years old - and I see every once in a while up on the TD Garden concourse!!) http://www.sportsmuseum.org/

100 Greatest Hockey Players Of All Time

What follows is a listing of the 100 greatest hockey players of all time, in my opinion. As discussed earlier, the definition of greatness is a very personalized endeavor and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.
While there is no way of ever truly ranking the top 100 definitively, it is important for the creators of such lists to be open and transparent of how the came to their conclusions. That accountability allows the reader to better understand the process. 

Although admittedly I'm using a completely unscientific formula, I weigh career achievements (era statistics, awards, championships) and legacy (impact on and off ice, peak dominance) equally high. I rank player ability as the third most important ingredient, as first and foremost as a tie breaker. Hence, I'm not necessarily looking for the better player, as in text book definitions of what a hockey player should be, but for players with the greatest careers and greatest legacies. Therefore the best player is not n…
