I heard Orlov said he likes RD for his offensive game and Johnson / Hunter said he belongs on the LD.
He clearly plays better on the right side than the left. Every time he's on the left, he struggles. Even in Hershey. He coughs up the puck much more and has a harder time reading the play from the left, for some reason. He's just a lot more comfortable on the right.
They tried Orlov on the left once the full compliment of Green, Carlson, and Wideman were healthy. It didn't work. With a full set of RD already, there wasn't a spot for Orlov.
