Yeah, i think Orpik may be the odd man out, or they could staal Letang over the summer.
I really disagree on the Orpik front. Shero hasn't really been the kind of "business is business" GM, and after Orpik gave up much less to play for the pens last time he was a free agent, I doubt that they let him go without trying to keep him. 3.5mil has been a very good price for a top 4 defenseman. I believe there is a very good chance that Orpik will end his career with Pittsburgh.
