George may be more obsessed than I with handedness and how it affects the players, that said, even with 3RD's and it being Orlov's natural position, it would not surprise me if he adds another RH D if we are competing at the deadline.
I want to speculate on Orlov since no one has said anything, but will differ and assume we are all thinking the same thing. Which sucks. No news is usually good news, but I don't think so this time. Skating is a great sign, but I think George will be cautious.
Rest assured, no one in his core will be the first to go.
Was curious. The speculation is he's not tradeable but I think that is the distant hope of a desperate fan.
It's just speculation. He's one of the game's premiere goal scorers - there are maybe 5 more guys in the league who have that kind of ability to put puck in the net. No matter what his salary is, these guys are rare thus return would be very good. There are many teams for whom cash is not a problem.
