If you read between the lines as to what GMGM was saying, it seems Orlov has virtually no shot at making the team.
Maybe they get crazy and put Eakin there. Seeing MoJo's issues with the dot last year might make one hesitant to put another rookie right behind him. They could always move Laich back to 3C shift Eakin to a wing and move Brouwer up to 2nd line wing, but what if MoJo has not improved or lapse throughout the year?
That might have been one of the few things posters would agree on. I think I was being generous in saying 6 months till next year. IMO, he needs to have some leaps and bounds or have some serious injury issues up top to move above P. McNeill to even get call ups.
