Are the remaining assets workable?
He has the 20th highest cap hit in the league for defensemen. I'd prefer to save that for my top, or at least top pairing guy. I don't think he's crap like a lot of people do, I just think he's grossly overpaid, at least for a budget team.

Orpik is a good piece and would provide the meanness our defense lacks, but I think there's too much futures and grinders in the rest. There's no way this isn't Selanne's last year (assuming the rumors are correct), and if we lose Ryan we need a legitimate top 6 player. Do you honestly think Kennedy can be a legitimate 2C? (not being an ass, just don't watch him that closely). I'll be honest I don't know your prospects well enough to intelligently discuss them.

That was helpful of me, wasn't it
