I like your talk about a prospect swap but IMO if we don't trust Cole we shouldn't start with any other Rookie (not named Gormley) too
From just about every Penguin fan that I've seen post about Orpik, it seems that he a big down year last season. He is no longer the player that he was in the past. We shouldn't being going after any aging defensemen, unless the price is really cheap. We lost

Colaiacovo who provided significant powerplay minutes, and he quarterbacked the 2nd unit, if we trade for someone, I think they need to pick up some of that slack. Our powerplay is at its best when Pietrangelo and Shattenkirk are together. Russell is a really good puck mover, but he really doesn't provide much offense for the powerplay.

I wouldn't move any of our top prospects or Stewart for Orpik.
