What you're forgetting is, if it weren't for Bouillon, O'Byrne would be our 6th D. And with Brisebois on the roster, O'Byrne should only see maybe 40-60 games.

If you're not hating on him, as you say, how do you propose a team brings in a stay at home defenceman with some regular season & playoff experience?
