Orpik isn't in the position to call anyone out. Ask him about forgetting the Briere was in the zone and not covering him while he took that offside pass for a breakaway.
Orpik should just be quiet he was as bad as Martin. Different but just as bad.
I'm not saying he is in any position to call anybody out, I just found it interesting how he responded to that question. I mean to me it was an obvious yes. You could tell he wanted to say it but felt it better not to because of how it would be implied towards certain players on D.
What was Shero supposed to do? Tear his shirt off and give Paul Martin a Hulk Hogan legdrop? He was being politically correct, just like we all knew he would.
Ya I dont get this either. Its not like Shero is going to come out and say that Martin is being traded and that Suter and Parise have already agreed to contracts with the team so everything is good. He is not going to tip his hand on what he wants done and he shouldnt.
Was that an option because that would have been pretty awesome?
"Well, you see, my gathered friends in the media, what we have just outside those doors is Paul Martin, a bus, and a semi-famous Russian Strongman. I know what you're thinking, now. You're thinking 'but Rejean, why a Russian Strongman?'! Well fear not, my friends, as we're about to demonstrate. Follow me."
And then he and the media personalities walk out the doors.
And then the Russian Strongman grabs Paul Martin and literally throws him under the bus.
