If you want to run an opposing team's stars and put pests in their place, you need a fast, reckless player capable of taking heads off with borderline (or just outright) illegal hits. Someone in the vein of Darcy Tucker or Tie Domi. Someone who has a reputation of being crazy enough to do just about anything on the ice.

The problem with players of that sort is that they will inevitably take a lot of penalties, so you need to be sound enough defensively to make up for the punishment and intimidation they provide.

Orr is still not fast enough to be that sort of player. Brown is, but he's not nearly mean enough.

That said, I still like both of them on the fourth line, and the improvements Orr has made in the off-season are inspiring.
