Bobby Orr: “Everybody lost in the lockout”

One guy who is disappointed in what the lockout did to the NHL is Bobby Orr.

The legendary Bruins defenseman spoke to Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com about his feelings on the nearly four-month long work stoppage and he believes no one comes out on top in a situation like this.

“How do you pick winners in something like this? You can’t pick any winners and losers in something like this. Everybody lost.” Orr said.

“Now you just hope that the players get back to work and they play hard. I’m sure they will because it’s going to be a short season. If you get off to a bad start then you’re in trouble. It should be really good hockey.”

Orr said he wished a settlement happened sooner and that a lockout hurts more than the players and owners. All along through the work stoppage he’s been critical of both sides and said it would be “outrageous not to have a season.”

Hey maybe Bobby Orr isn’t just the greatest player of all time, maybe he’s the most sensible agent as well.
