Jagr was playing in the same league has the Tank and Emelin, so it's not like it's an Amateur league.

O'Byrne couldn't clinch a regular spot on our Defense even when it was completely battered. So I wouldn't be too quick on saying he's better than Valentenko or Emelin.

I haven't giving up on O'Byrne, I think he'll be good for us down the line but your theory makes no sense.
No I'm not quick on saying he's better, He ACHIEVED better period. That's a fact with a 3 years contract as main highlight. Valentenko couldn't clinch a regular spot and Emelin never even bothered.

I was just answering this:

Please trade him within the division.
Not like I'm starting one of those speculative arguments about which average defenseman is better. Since Valentenko and Emelin will probably never play in the NHL, I don't really care to be honest
