That's the difference. Many do not believe that Orr brings something to the team. Even if you do, you're now committed to a 12th forward that will only get 5 shifts, and just how much of a contribution anyone make with that kind of ice time? It boils down to playing 11 forwards and 3 lines, or 12 forwards and 4 lines when Orr is involved.
