Im not saying Despres sucks anywhere...ever...but i am saying his sample size is way to small to be penciled in the top pairing of a Cup aspiring team.

And to Cliff...you must be kidding. You think we are better off without Orpik going into the playoffs and riding a kid like Despres? Despres is very good and will probably be great but to think that him and Letang as a top pair is cool then i cant help you. One could argue Letang is as much a liability defensively as Orpik so ride Letang-Despres is a sure fire way to get Flyer'ed again this year.

As mentioned Orpik is the only (albeit not very impressive at times) shut down physical stay at home style guy on D we have...not REAL likely to be moved unless its a great deal.
