Indeed, me too. It'd be disappointing to see him sit. But, when was the last time you saw Bouillon make a big hit anyway? He'll hit, but few big hits. He's gritty, but ... he's too exposed down low, and I'm starting to appreciate O'Byrne's size and skating. At times, I see O'Byrne dominating down low and winning scrambles for the puck to move it out...

Maybe I'm getting enthusiastic about a guy because I saw him as a bit of a slug before (not in terms of skating, but more thinking the game), but I'd like to see O'Byrne's progression this year. He could step up in the playoffs similarly to Komisarek's playoff debut.
