Point well taken, but, with respect, I think we'll need a lot more than Orr to balance the playing field on the physicality front. However, if he's improved some of the other dimensions of his game, especially if he is now quick enough to effectively hit, forecheck, backcheck, dig for the puck, etc., then it's a great start.
