This league always has "copycat" syndrome. Whomever has success gets mimicked by teams the following year. Sometimes this changes the pattern of the whole league. You saw it when the "Legion of doom" came around, all of the sudden you couldn't get drafted unless you were 6 foot 4. Teams like Tampa and Carolina won without a real enforcer, so everybody phased them out. Now the Ducks like to get it on, and fight ALOT. I think the mimics are going to be out in full force, and you'll see more fighting majors this year. If we didn't carry a guy like Orr, our young guys would be having some problems. I really like the kid. His skills aren't great, but he tries hard, and he's got the best punch we've had around since Kocur left. If you're going to carry a one trick pony, it better be a good trick. I think he does just fine.
