I think o'byrne has been slowly improving in the last 3 games or so. He has made better decisions and he just plain looks more confident with the puck especially on breakouts. He's also playing better positionally.

Now, is he still making mistakes? Yes. But its still a step in the right direction that he's playing better. Hopefully, he continues to stride in that direction.

For a while, it looked like o'byrne was playing worse than the day he got called up for his first nhl game. So that tells me his issues are more mental than anything else. I think being benched for the start of the playoffs messed him up mentally too. I'm cautiously optimistic that he's coming around now.
