But Orr's Alan Eagleson has other ideas. this week or early next week I am going to send a letter to every World Hockey Association club saying simply 'Bobby Orr will be a free agent on Sept. 1976. Are you interested in acquiring Mr. Orr's services after that 'If please contact me with respect to your proposals.' Eagleson said Thursday night. He said the Bruins want to extend Orr's contract for an additional seven years to re- tain his services until 1983. the Bruins want him for 10 years then they are soing to have to pay a figure that will be sufficient to offset the amount of money Bobby can earn as a free agent in three Eagleson said. Orr is at his Canadian hockey school and could not be reached for comment. Eagleson said a figure some- where between million and 56 million would not be un- realistic. be the first to admit that talking contracts in terms of million or mil- lion just doesn't make any sense economically whatever. But the whole thing will stop only when businessmen stop lining up to buy he said.
