I went ahead and went in on a multi seat 13 game plan with my folks. Having to pick and choose games is nice and gives you flexibility but the cost differential to selecting one at a time games as they come really is overstated. You'll pay markup for sure on the good games especially if the team plays well and you have to find a section you want.
I'm fine with my plan. I hope we do get a little sweetener though aside from just the same seats and the playoff priority.
Volchenkov wasn't on Team Russia, Orpik was on Team USA. Orpik also has been playing more minutes. But yeah there isn't much evidence that Orpik is better. Just sucks to be born in the wrong country, that's all.
As for Volchenkov, I'll be hoping he does well in Nashville, it seems like a good fit.
Pretty sure Laviolette had some input in this signing as well.
