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.
I think it is more #2. Take liberties with Kadri and you will pay. Carlyle is protecting his prodigy and sending a message simultaneously.
