If you were able to watch the preseason games, especially the last 2 (Islanders & Flyers games). Hollweg keeps taking unnecessary penalty and most of his hits were borderline. If he keeps it up, he will be a liability more than he is a necessity. If you watch Orr, he is trying to play his game and improve on it. He can only utilize the preseason to his advantage and show Renney (even though they already love Orr already). If Hollweg doesn't get smarter and be more careful with his hits .. he will end up like Steve Downie!
Those last two games, Orr didn't want to fight but at times he needed to send a message (i.e. Jason Smith). All the crowd that Hollweg drew (with the penalty he takes) Orr was like "not again". LOL I love the fighting and the rough stuff in hockey but we can't have Hollweg out there costing them 2 points. We can't have Drury and Shanny fighting to protect Jagr and the other team mates.
Orr is not only necessary but he can only improve his game and protect (as much as he can) his team mates.
