    I have to wonder how Orpik will do in that position. He never seemed particularly, um... patient... at least while he was here. But it's tough to tell how former players will transition into roles such as those.

    No wishing or relishing injury. Ovechkin being an easy target doesn't mean the rule doesn't apply. Same goes for any player on rival teams.

    I wish we had players that looked like they had catastrophic injuries and then didn’t.

    Werenski deal is an unreal bargain

    I bet the Islanders fans there just love that. They were constantly on his case last season for underrating them.

    Orpik sucks and is an asshole. Hope it goes poorly.

    Instead we have the opposite: players who seem fine but are actually catastrophically injured.

    Wasn't Orpik the guy that started the movement to take the C off Crosby when he was hurt? You want that guy teaching/coaching?

    Lol, f*** that guy.

    Yeah. A bunch of players all came to practice with a "C" on their jersey to show support for Crosby.

    Malkin wore a "K" which I thought was hilarious.

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of Orpik, I hope he never makes his way back to the Pens in any shape or form. Dude can f*** off with the Caps for the rest of his life with that psycho stare.

    Yeah, we always get the minor collisions that turn into experimental reconstructive surgery. :(

    I think it's a good deal for both to be honest. Werenski is getting salaries of $4MM, $4MM, and $7MM so his launching point for his next contract starts at $7MM and will likely grow materially from there. A bit risky with injuries and all of that, but I think he will get PAID on the next one. 8 years $80MM+ isn't out of the question.

    All these RFA's still without contracts at this point is nuts.

    Apparently Marner has turned down 11 mil for 7/8 years. He might just need therapy to get over his McDavid/Matthews complex.

    I guess his dad Paul is total poison, too. And a big reason this whole situation has spiraled so far out of control.

    I've been saying it a lot lately but gosh we're spoiled.

    I'll always appreciate the 2007-08 version of Orpik. After that, he's dead to me.

    I mean, money is money and the cap is well, the Cap. If his dad believes he's better/more important than Matthews...he should want and get over 11M.
    Sucks for TOR but hey, they didn't have to go out and get JT, paying him top bucks, either and have Marner locked up already.

    I fully believe Marner's the better, more impactful player btw and should get the big bucks.

    Marner is better than Matthews in the same way Phil Kessel is better than say.. Mark Scheifele. I.e. he isn’t at all, but I guess the points are close.

    Oh don't mistake me, Toronto can go f*** themselves. I just think it seems like kind of a circus at this point over 600ish thousand and some wounded pride. It's still a giant pile of money and commitment from Toronto. And it always seems like Lindros-dads are a bad sign.

    Not even close.
    Marner is like Kucherov to Matthews' Stamkos.
