Maybe he's just a really late bloomer, but to me that indicates he is a marginal player that could easily lose his spot if someone else shows they are a better fit.

Voros is 27, but considering he had to fight through cancer to make it to the NHL, I'm willing to cut him some slack on his development.

Orr may be on his way out. If he is, then he will likely be replaced by Voros rather than Rissmiller. Voros had 141 PIM in 55 games. Rissmiller had 30 PIM in 79 games.
Did they not sign Rissmiller to play him????????............come on people he will not be sent to Hartford or released

This just buys another yr for the Hartford crew that should be ready next yr for sure................I would imagine Betts, Orr, Rissmiller are gondie after this yr AND Korpikoski, Byers, Amisinev replace them
