I used Orpik because he will probably be taking Orpik's spot if/when he leaves. I doubt the Pens would let him go, but he's slowly getting worse. We don't see any more free candy from him.
but Orpik doesn't do a good job of getting back into position. Orpik uses hits to be more of a momentum/game changer of a defensive D than he is a stable defensive force back there. He's certainly not a Scuderi type. Orpik's the kind of guy that you will always notice his best plays and his worst plays and they will have a big impact on the game.
