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.
Those entry level contracts are what will keep him here having him take the leadership role and help the kids out playing in a more reduced role that should suite him in the coming years.

Year 3/4 could be like this
Despres, Letang
Dumoulin/Maata, Morrow
Orpik, Harrington

Now what's the problem? I don't see any. We'll lose one of these young guys in some sort of a trade, maybe two.
