So Corsby, Malkin, Iginla, Morrow, Dupuis, Kunitz, Martin, Cooke, Jokinen, Letang, Adams, and Eaton aren't enough?
Wow, I wish Shero would have beefed up our veteran leadership for just such an occasion...
Orpik is the leader of the defense, do you think his presence going missing would go unnoticed? Letang is the only defenseman that you mentioned and he doesn't wear the "A" on his jersey
Obviously the team thinks a lot more of him than some of you do.
