sorry, orpik in front of the net is not a good idea.

a) he's not that big, so his screens wouldn't be terribly effective
b) his ability to hit has nothing to do with playing that spot
c) he has zero experience in that spot
d) occasionally, the guy up front will have to venture out and dig up a loose puck and cycle or go into the slot for a scoring chance. safe to say orpik would be pretty sucky at this.
