Can't disagree about Orpik. I have no idea how anybody could possibly look at the Pens' D the past few years and say "let's put 1/3rd of those guys on team USA" - they've been carved up by lesser offenses than they'll see in Sochi many, many times.

I wanted Buff on the team as well, though probably not that high. I just think a guy with his unique skill set and the ability to play forward and D would be very useful.

Honestly though, every olympic selection is going to have sites of conflict and disagreement. I really don't think this is that bad. I guess we'll see soon enough.
