. That's just silly. They drafted him to be a big, bruising, shut-down presence on the back end. If they feel he can do that at the NHL level, then he'll play. And if he doesn't score a point all season no one will give a ****.
I know he wasnt drafted to score pts.. but he should be a complete player and round out his game as best as he can without having the rest of his game fall apart... Orpik wasnt drafted to score either but still put up a few pts in the AHL.... that is all i meant by my comment.
