Awesome, he will probably want a raise now and we will lose him.

Well, salaries are relative. Orr would probably be happy with a raise to 600k, not like that would kill our cap space or anything...

Yeah a bit old but he certainly won't get much of a pay raise.

Best deal on a enforcer in the league a great fighter in top 5 of the league playing well and I told you so is fitting from me. Why not more bench Orr threads

I do love Orr, and I love the improvement out of him this year, but I question the methodology used by the author.

For starters, he says that "Since a game’s momentum usually swings to the team whose player prevails in a fight, we awarded a bonus for each win and subtracted points for each loss." I have my doubts about that bolded part; I'd like to see some numbers to back that one up. They also use the voting on hockeyfights.com to determine win/lose/draw, which I suppose is the best outside source you could use, but those votes are largely driven by homerism as well.

Second, it only takes fighting into account. We've all seen how much Orr has improved his skating this year, yet the article doesn't mention that at all even though it's probably far more important with regard to the success of the team than his fighting ability. Case in point, they rank Laraque as number two even though he's the highest paid enforcer in the league and doesn't even dress half the time. That's getting bang for your buck?

I guess if you do decide to dress him and you close your eyes and let him fight, your going to get your money's worth if you know hes going to win.

No if only he would get some points. I don't care if they happen by accident. I want to see him contribute in more areas of the ice! However little. He's developed all the other parts (skating, defense) which were more important to work on first but it's time for some accidental or non-accidental points Colton!

HockeyFights is usually pretty accurate as far as the voting for W/L/T goes. There are quite a few very vocal homers on the forums, but the votes usually turn out pretty accurately.
