89Colton Orr was signed to a four year, four million dollar contract by the Toronto Maple Leafs, who as a franchise changed their philosophy and attempted to become a tougher team. Orr was at the centre of that and was one of the most active, aggressive, and best enforcers in the league. Orr had another four fight series this year, this time with Ottawa Senators' rookie, Matt Carkner. Orr TKO'd Carkner in the first fight, Carkner got some revenge and TKO'd Orr, but then Orr KO'd Carkner and handily won their fourth fight to get the clear upper hand in the rivalry. Orr took a KO loss of his own though, to Jody Shelley and Shelley did well in the rematch, earning a draw despite getting jumped by Orr. Orr's only other losses were in good fights to old rival, Donald Brashear and one of the best in the league in huge Steve MacIntyre. Orr had draws with Georges Laraque, Eric Godard, George Parros, Shawn Thornton, Matt Walker, and Darcy Hordichuk. Orr had a win in a really nice fight with David Koci, bloodied Brian McGrattan, and scored clear wins over Cam Janssen and Milan Lucic. Orr also took clear decisions against Steve Begin and Nick Tarnasky in bad fights and pounded on Arron Asham. Somewhat unusually, Orr had another fight with Shaone Morrisonn, a non-fighter who again took on Orr when standing up for a teammate. All in all, a really strong year for Orr who was clearly one of the best heavyweights in the league.
