It will be interesting to see how they handle the pairings next season. Hopefully Despres gets a shot to make the team. I do remember last pre-season he was playing pretty well with Letang.

Despres - Letang
Martin - Michalek
Orpik - Engelland

It also might prolong Orpik's career a bit to reduce his minutes a little bit. He might become more effective that way with not as much of a toll being taken on his body.

Some people will get all up in arms saying that Despres isn't ready for a top 4 role, but each of those pairings can play over 20 minutes on any given night.
