Orr would not have been afraid of Kassian. This guy gave John Scott a body shot to win his fight against Scott, so sucker punching Kassian would have been right up his avenue. As I said, Orr is not a guy who gives a damn about "The Code" or solving conflicts through the fighting major.

He wanted to injure Plekanec Matt Cooke style, and the only to defend against that is Plekanec himself avoid the hit. Kassian would be a few feet away, and then try to start a fight after the damage was done, just like what Bourque tried to do.
Again. Nowhere did I say Orr would be afraid of Kassian. That's not the point.

Point is at 5 or 6 nothing, what you do is tell Kassian that when Orr goes on the ice, you go on the ice and make sure he isn't running around.
