Orpik was pretty poor in the regular season, but much better in the post season.
The top 6 is fine. The bottom 6 is a mess. They have bodies, just not the right bodies. Nobody is afraid of matching up against Jokinen-Sutter-D'Agostini/Jeffrey as a 3rd line.
If one of Orpik or Martin were to be moved, it would be to move Despres into a top 4 role, and use the cap savings to build a better 3rd line.
AP>>>Despres...but on a team that needs probably 2 bottom six forwards, it doesn't make any sense to spend the money there.
