I'm glad we are opting out of the Campbell sweepstakes but I worry about giving Orpik a 4 year, $20m deal. That is way too much for that guy. He is so overrated and everyone on here is drinking the Cool Aid about him. He honestly sucks. Pittsburgh isn't even making a strong offer to retain him because he was outplayed by Hal Gill in the playoffs.
Orpik was a third pairing defenseman by the time the Finals rolled around.
So Pittsburgh plays Gonchar on their 3rd pairing and gives him 1st pairing minutes? Huh.. so THATS their secret to winning!
I don't quite understand where everyone is getting the idea that he sucks. How many of you actually watch Pittsburgh more than 8 times a year?
