Now, crosschecking opposing forwards in the face is not the right way to stand up for our players, IMO. I'm willing to give the kid a pass on that one, though another bull**** play like that and I'd waive him outright.

So while my opinion on Orr has not changed one bit this season, I've become a little more willing to let him do his thing. I think he looked OK out there yesterday, didn't hurt us at all If I recall correctly. Again, I think the kid is pretty useless, but half of our team is useless right now. Hopefully Orr can elevate his game and turn himself into a competent enforcer. I'm not holding my breath, but what the hell.
What i highlighted sums up Orr to me...I think we all wish we could do better with that lineup spot and it's time to look from within...

In Hartford there are 5 players that could step in and add something to those bottom two lines.
