Can't wait for the day Komisarek is off this team. Total crapbox.

Oh well, here is to hoping this turns into a mean streak for Komi and he ends Armstrong and well... I'd say Markov but he will hurt himself for us.

Having a bruise from a puck hitting you; somehow makes you soft/injury prone?

Your comment has no real context for the current discussion.

[QUOTE=Dangles McGavin;57632647]I'd much prefer Orr over Brown.

Brown is ****ing useless. I can't understand why people like him. He threw a huge hit in game 1 last year against the Habs, and then did next to nothing the rest of the season. He skates fast and does nothing else.

- Disagree! Brown is a good hitter, he's fearless (which is rare on this team), he sacrifices his body and hes' good in his own end. I'll give you this, he's not a good fighter at all, 9/10 of the fights he gets into he loses badly, but give him credit he shows up.

Orr's a great fighter but thats all hes good at, he can't skate nor hit, nor is he good defensively nor does he chip in offensively. The thing is now enforcers are rare, nowadays your 4th liners need to be able to skate, hit, defend and occasionally chip in with the odd goal. I feel Colton is uselss on this team....

Im not too concerned about JVR. a shot to the foot tends to hurt... give the right spot it could bruise pretty good. such a bruise would ultimately prevent you from skating, let alone power skating.

as for the orr vs. brown. I'd happily take both on the 4th line. our team needs SOME toughness.

I loved Brown the year we had him, lots of energy !

Last year did anyone else notice that all his fights were staged off the faceoffs ? That part of fighting should be gone from the nhl, drives me nuts ! I believe a fighter should only have to do so if a player from the other team takes a run at play of ours, not just waste his fists in a staged one so the players on the other team know he's done for the evening and attack at will...

Guess I prefer someone who can throw checks and if confronted or agitated, can drop the gloves and back himself

Don't kid yourself. Fourth liners are required to log a few mins and as long as the puck doesn't go in while they are on that's the only objective. Nothing else matters as long as they are defensively responsible. If Orr can do this, and provide comfort/reassurance whatever you want to call it to the skilled players on the team that they are looked after he is doing his job. Orr isn't the greatest skater but he looks like a Ferrari next to Steckel, but that's right Steckel is sick at faceoffs.
