He's only 32 and it's not like he'll hammer the team with the 35+ rule here. If the team runs 8 D-man from now on it's even easier to keep'em.
I think it depends upon how he plays over the course of the year, whether there's a decline, and if guys like Dumoulin, Harrington, or another acquisition can do what he does physically.
I don't see Orpik being traded anytime soon. But, if the question is whether he's untouchable forever, then I don't think so.
