Many may say that Brooks Orpik isn’t what the New Jersey Devils need. He’s an aged veteran, that’s a bit slower than your average Devil these days.
Is Orpik just what the Devils lack at the moment. A defenseman that won’t be pushed around. He does the pushing, the checking, and the hitting. Something the Devils severely lacked on their blue line that was exploited and exposed during the playoffs.
For a team that is reasonably a few years away from a serious Stanley Cup run, Orpik would be a nice addition until the younger Santini and Mueller are ready to log the ice time.
