Please just ask yourselves this question, we are a team that wants to win a Cup, is trading an alternate captain/leader in the locker room mid season sound realistic? I want to hear your opinions because it sounds ridiculous to me.
I'm not seeing alot of Orpik's leadership on the ice. He has god awful performances and talks **** on the rest of the team afterwards.
His days are numbered here. If dealing him is what separates us from getting Sid/Geno talented linemates, I'm down.
If we keep coming out flat like this, I'd deal him to shake that locker room up.
