I've been saying that for the past week now. We're ready to live with O'Byrne's mistakes, we should be ready to live with Weber's....though the reports from Hamilton is that he's OK defensively at the AHL Level....seems to me that O'Byrne would me more than just OK........But offensively, it could do the job. If Streit really would have been interested at the start of last year to sign for 2 or 2.5 but with the guarantee that he had to play only on defense.....that was a bad call by Gainey. He was not as awful as people said he was defensively with us. He had a good transition game and great on the PP. I was ready to live with him being outmuscled from time to time. And then if not for Streit, we had to be proactive in getting somebody else.

We'll see how Bob handles that from now on till the deadline.
