Orts was one of our best players?!?! Henrik, Jagr and Orts. Who doesn't belong in that group?

I don't know if it is possible to overrate a player any more than you are doing for Orts. He was at best a decent penalty killer who offered absolutely nothing else. The fans like anyone who 'looks' like they are trying but everyone on the ice is trying. Who the fans cheer is irrelevant. They cheer Orr more than Orts. Does that make Orr really valuable too?
