Orpik, could have easily been getting 4.5/5.5 for these past years.

You basically are getting him at fair market value if he signs for the same or near at the end of his deal. You most likely won't bring in a guy at what Orpik signed for.
No offense, but I'm with mpp9 on this. I've got no problem with a 3M 'thanks for the memories' deal comparable to what Ottawa gave Chris Phillips.

But, with Sid and Geno's wingers AND Letang being issues, overpaying Orpik shouldn't be a priority IMO.
