wow... we have way too many man crush threads. Says a lot about our sexuality on these boards ... but nonetheless

I think Orr stays in and Callahan is out when Hossa comes back.

Love Orr, but do think he'll be the one who's out come Hossa's return. And since it looks like Hossa wont be coming back until right before the playoffs, that will ice it for sure imo.

But Orr has been very good in the role asked of him. SHutting down opposing top lines and winning fights in big ways. Plus, since he's been in the lineup there has been next to zero goonery. The last team who tried it resulted with their enforcer likely not having a career anymore.

Big fan of Orr, but their roles are completely different. 4th liners are primarily for energy, checking, protecting..etc. I wouldnt want Callahan in that role. I would prefer Callahan stay in the role his is in or be sent back to the minors.

Orr

Been defending Orr on other sites sice the Rangers snagged him off waivers last year. Countless times I have heard that this guy can't skate, and can't fight. Now on the skating part, it's easy to see that is definately an area of concern. He has trouble keeping up with the play...and the guy also has trouble handlin the puck. But strictly as an enforcer I think the kid has done a tremendous job for the Rangers. And not just for the Fedoruk KO either. Orr is certainly not the best fighter in the game. It could be argued that he even loses more than he wins...but when he does win, it's in convincing fashion. But to me what is more important is he is ALWAYS there to stand up for his teammates. He ducks nobody, and that is something that has been a problem in the past. He is as honest an enforcer as there is. Recently he had Boulton in a compromising position. He was down on one knee, and Colton had a free hand cocked back and ready to fire, but he eased up and didn't throw the punch. You would have never seen Dale Purinton do that!

Plus another thing on Orr. I really can't remember any Ranger enforcer that has done as much damage as this guy in his first two seasons. Hell I can't really remember any enforcer in the league that has done as much damage as Orr in thier first two seasons. Maybe Troy Crowder or Joey Kocur...and that's some pretty tough competition. For Colton who should only get better playingwise, and fightwise...I think it's a good move for the Rangers to hang onto him for a while.

Him Knocking Todd The F out will certainly send a message to anyone that was running our top players to think twice b4 they do it again.
It took long enough for that message to get out! Lets hope it sticks

Seriously, can we at least give it a different name? It's just so annoying. How about the Colton Orr Appreciation Thread or something...

People laugh at Orr. Can't skate, pass, shoot or even fight as well as might be expected....and to some extent I'd have to agree on all.

But!!!!

The guy just works his A$$ off Plain and simple. That goal today was just pure grit. Emblematic of the Rangers drive in recent weeks.

Orr rarely makes a dopey or irresponsible play. It's just so great for me to see a guy come so far after so much hard work. Warms my heart really. I'm Proud of the guy and Glad he's a Ranger.

Imagine all the cap space we would have if we only had one player. The Rangers should look into this because Orr is all you need.

Nah, that would count as heresy in the church of S:t Henrik.

I've not been very kind always to Colton in the past. He seems to have found a niche though on the 4th line with Betts and Hollweg. Some of this must have to do with the Rangers finally playing Betts where he belongs--anyway back to Colton. It might be a good idea in these last few games to keep him in the lineup. He's been able to take somewhere around 10 min. a game without being a liability--with the race as tight as it is and so many desperate teams out there I'd feel more comfortable having him play every night--whether that means Callahan sits more or goes down to Hartford or that Hollweg sits one or two out I don't know--and the playoffs are another thing--there Orr might be sitting more--even so for now I'd be keeping him in the lineup.
