.. either way, I want one or both on the Sabres
I wouldn't be. Orpik's entire career has been a slow, but steady progression with only one real hiccup - when he chose not to play hockey during the lockout and had a bit of trouble getting back on track developmentally. This is the player everybody knew he could become when he was drafted. Anybody saying they've never been impressed by Orpik, as someone in this thread already has, hasn't watch a single Pens playoff game.
