I love his heart, his fighting ability, and his devotion to getting better in the off-season...that being said, he's still awful at actually playing hockey. Can't skate, can't hit, can't cycle, can't shoot, can't pass. No way I want to give this guy a contract for 4 years. One fight gone wrong and he's a complete waste of a roster space. You don't lock any fighter up that long term, it's a bad investment IMO.
Yeah, but Orr isn't 35+ so if he gets injured in a fight and is no longer capable of doing anything, you can easily just demote him to the AHL and clear the space. It wouldn't have any controversy surrounding it either like demoting redden might...

I wouldn't worry about the rangers organization losing $4 million because an enforcer gets a career ending injury
