Colton Orr is a Worthless hack

So the refs think he deserved to be punished with a penalty but not the league?  Orr is a worthless hack, you’re right.

I hate to admit this since it is Colton Orr, but I didn’t see him extend the knee and he did have position as he was actually trying to throw a shoulder. Sometimes even an idiot can just be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I fail to see how that was intentional.

It doesn’t look intentional. Orr moved in the same direction the whole time, shifted his weight to the right to throw a shoulder and got beat to the inside. Couture had his whole weight on the leg that made contact.

They’re both luck that Orr tried to throw a hit or that would have been a direct knee-on-knee rather than knee on lower thigh.

Full speed though, I can see why that would be called a penalty.

Hope Couture is ok.

Completely agreed.  Unfortunate for sure, but nothing illegal.

At the time, watching it live, I thought it was a bad hit.  I hope that Couture is o.k.
