I don't know if it's just me but I have this impression that most fans have a crush on O'Byrne for some reason. It's something that I don't really get. I found him very sub-par when he was called upon last year and also in the two games this year. Maybe it's just me I guess...only time will tell.
I' m not his biggest fan out there but we do need his presence on the ice. We can't afford (cap wise) a higher talent level defenceman for now and we don't have any defenceman ready to play on a regualr basis yet (I don't agree Weber is ready just yet, close but not yet).

I'm confident Gainey will be in the running for a defenceman come trade deadline when we will be able to afford one.
