And you would know this how?

The guy has been playing pretty poor d of late. Chasing players around and looking for hits while taking himself out of position. The Orpik-Letang pairing was a trainwreck last night.

I think if the right deal came along, all pens d are in play. His leadership in the locker room is more valuable if the team is full of young players. Guys like Crosby, Fleury, Malkin, Letang arent 21 anymore. They have all been around awhile and all won cups. That argument of Orpik is not worth near as much to the pens anymore.

Orpik should be able to bring in a top 6 forward that may be needing a change of scenery
