Yeah, i would really be surprised if shero doesnt push for a first/second round pick. To much talent to wait till the third round. Although I could have seen orpik getting a first during the deadline, i dont think shero wanted to deplete our defence more.
Imo harrington could be the perfect replacement. He doesnt have the physical side but makes up for it in hockey IQ, add on to a fact that he will be a good defencemen much longer than orpik.(meaning his body wont break down)
