Is Orpik a dirty player?

If you go check out the Hurricans Blog here on SBnation, they are having a debate over Orpik.

It centers around the injury to Erik Cole, with many espousing that Orpik is either a dangerous and dirty player, or a player who plays that line too much.

My first reaction was to jump in and defend Orpik, but then I realized I hadn't really considered the question.

I realize even if he isn't the Canes fans will hate him, he really hurt one of their better guys, I can understand that.  If someone broke Max Talbot's neck I wouldn't be the most rational person about it.

So just wanted to ask, is Orpik a dirty (or borderline dirty) player that we love cause he's on our team?

Or (as I always have thought) is he a big hitter who plays as clean as he can and ends up in come nasty ones because they are unavoidable?

How clean/defendable is Orpik?
