BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Earlier this week, Boston Bruins legend and hockey hall-of-famer Bobby Orr stopped by to talk about his new book, "Bobby: My Story In Pictures," his career, the changes in the NHL over the years, and more with WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Adam Kaufman.

Orr said he enjoyed gathering the photos for the book and getting lost in the memories--and that the deeper he went, the more photos he found.

"I have a lot of friends in it, people who meant a lot to me, teammates, people who helped me along the way," Orr said. "I just thought it would be a way to say thank you, and keep them out there a little bit. It was fun. I enjoyed it. It took a little while for them to convince me to do it, but in the end, after looking at some of these photos, I thought it would be nice to put them together."

Kaufman asked Orr how different he thinks his career would have been if he played in today's style of play and with the modern NHL's rules.

"It would've been fun to play in today's rules," Orr said. "Without the center line now, completely open ice, the long passes and so on. With technology, medical technology, maybe I could've played a little longer ... I don't have any regrets, except I wish I could've played a little bit more."

The two also talked about how medical advancements changed the sport, how Orr feels about the addition of helmets to the game, Boston's 39-year Stanley Cup drought, and more.
