Edit: This is something along the lines that Carlyle said about Orr to the media today. Don't take it word for word but I hope I'm pretty close.
"Orr plays an aggressive role for us, he has that trademark of protecting his teammates and I think he's in the best physical shape he's ever been in. I think he's moving fairly well"
Sounds like Carlyle likes him.
I always get suspicious when coaches used redundancies and genralities when talking about players.
So he's moving "fairly" well? Compared to what? To who? Best physical shape? Why the hell would he qualify his shape as being "physical"? He sounds like some random call centre agent for the bank speaking as vaguely as possible so nothing can be pinned on him.
I would assume that most players trying out at the NHL level move FAIRLY well. Most also come into camp in their best shape, I would assume.
