Orpik id not move. He is not a fan fav but he does all the dirty things, hes tough as nails and skates way better than Murray at this point. We dont have many dmen like Orpik...he stays healthy and plays right on the line between dirty/tough. Would really like him to be around to mentor Harrington.
I think Dupuis would stay here for around $2m. He has four kids and probably doesn't want to move them. Plus I think he loves being apart of this team in any role.

I'd say our best bet to fit all of Malkin/Letang/Iginla is to trade Martin this offseason while he's value is high from having a great year. We can then integrate one of Dumoulin/Harrington into the lineup. Then when Orpik's contract is up after next year we just don't resign him.
