The two situations aren't remotely comparable.
They are comparable, Crosby stunk, Orpik stunk. Crosby is supposed to be the best player in the world, he isn't supposed to make Claude Giroux look like the best player in the world,

My one and only point there was why doesn't Crosby get any critisism of his play while other players are tossed around as players to be traded because they stunk.

I happen to think they are both better than they showed in the playoffs and that is the point.

Orpik will be fine if he is put in a position where his skills are best suited.
