It'll be really weird seeing him on the Caps.

He might look better with Trotz coaching, who knows?

He's a very good third pairing defenseman. If he's on the second pair and paid like it, then he's not worth it.

Jesus couldn't make Orpik look better on the ice.

People forget the platoon of #7s and AHL defensemen that the Capitals have been using the past couple seasons.

He was outplayed by AHL defensemen this year in Pittsburgh.

Washington now has to be taken seriously. The east is getting tougher by the second and Washington will be a force this year.

Maybe they did this so they could tape him to the glass at Kettler and practice boarding penalties?

In a defensive system he might not be so terrible, we'll have to wait and see. But he was exposed big time last year in Pitt. Just awful in every way.

Todd Reirdon D coach from Pittsburgh is now coaching Washington Caps d and he spoke highly of Orpik in his recent interview. He's not going to recommend someone unless he believes what he is saying.

Left d and brings experience.

If the Caps don't force him to be on their shutdown pair and play with some semblance of center support, I really don't think it will be as bad.

Washington still can buy out one more contract. Can we use that now?

Barnaby just tweeted a 5 year deal for Orpik. My God. Move over Pouliot and Bolland!

Definitely needed a change of scenery. This has potential to be okay for the caps. Shouldn't be hated, just yet anyways. If he can regain some of his form he'll be a good fit in Washington.
