It is a reward for Orr playing well on the 4th line - but it's not working. Kadri's line would always be buzzing and now they have trouble sustaining pressure. Kadri is still producing but in spite of Orr not because of him.
Not sure I'd wanna forget Orr was out there if I were playing. Could have disastrous consequences.
