I would be thrilled. There is a possibility to have a great team while doing some development as well and if we're ready to give O'Byrne a chance, by having Barker, not only you're getting somebody better but you're also thinking about the future as well.
I guess we need to make a decision as far as O'Byrne is concerned. Some want to develop him by playing him, some say that he's not good enough and we need somebody better so we can go far this year. Seems to me everybody is right, still it won't be possible to do both. If he's not good enough to be top 4 but you still want to develop him, he needs to play, meaning #5 or #6.....but then who's place is he taking for the sake of development? Gorges or Bouillon? And then, is he even better than those 2? Can he play on his off-side on the bottom pairing? What purpose will serve him to let him in the stands? 'Cause next year we'll have openings? Maybe. But then, what happens to Brisebois? If O'Byrne is not traded, it's Brisebois who become top 4. But if O'Byrne and something else is traded for something better than O'Byrne, you keep Brisebois out of the lineup.
