Sometimes, like with Alex Ovechkin last month or Joe Thornton a few years back, a player has a good amount left...

Video: Brooks Orpik takes a nasty hit from Ryan White

Ryan White is starting to get a reputation around the league and it isn’t anything to write home about. He is adding to his less than sterling reputation with a hit on Brooks Orpik that left the defenseman dazed and confused. The hit is borderline in every sense of the term. Is the puck already gone? Yes. Did White come all the away across the ice to make the hit? Yes. Is there...

Penguins’ Orpik embroiled in controversy after hard hit on Toews

Let me know if you’ve heard this one before: a hard hit by Brooks Orpik, a star player injured, and yet another mindless conversation about Orpik’s status as a dirty player.
